This is a pretty common error, but you have provided no environmental information which would help with the solution.
Is the server a seperate machine?
Is it in a corporate network?
Does the network admnistrator know you are accessing the server?
Have you been given network rights to view the server?

Those are just a few of the questions that need to be answered to solve this problem.

Hi,

No users who are  trying to use the SQL server are not getting the error I am getting .. Probably the problems lies at the client than at the server.

Error Messaage I am getting:
Error 214767259
SQL server does not exist or acess denied
Native Error : 17
SQLState 08001
Reported by :Microsoft OLEDB provider for SQL server
connection failed


I checked http://support.microsoft.com/kb/328306/en-us  -- but unable to figure it out the exact cause for my error ...

Can any one guide me for resolution..

Environment Information:
---Corporate network
--- Server is a seperate machine
---I am not sure how to track whether the Network administrator knows about my usage
---No rights are there for me to use the server--- but confirmed from the support team that "no other user reported to them wit the same error"

Thanks,
rajesh

If you are trying to connect using a Query Analyzer, do the following steps. (one by one to figure out the root cause)

In the SQL Server Name Box type

1. The ip address of the SQl Server machine and see if you can connect. (By using Windows or SQL authentication whichever holds appropriate)
2. Next find which port the SQL Server listens on. Once you know the port number try connecting by typing the following (try then one by one to find which one works)

TCP:Servername, Port Number
TCP:IP address, Port Number
NP: Servername
NP: Ip address

3. Try to log into your machine from an account which is able to login from othre machines and test the same.


In case none of these help, get back with the following info.

1. Are you using Windows or SQL account to login?
2. With your user account can you login into other machines and access SQL Server.
3. FRom the problematic machine , can you ping that SQL Server machine?
