Timout error 258
Posted on 2006-06-29
In a command window, I'm using OSQL to login to a SQL Server Express 2005 database. However, it returns this error:
Shared Memory Provider: Timeout error 
Login timeout expired
Unable to complete login process due to delay in prelogin response
I reinstalled the .NET Framework, and SQL Server Express. I found a web page that referred to corrupted ODBC drivers so I repaired the MDAC installation. No luck.
I know the OSQL string I'm entering is correct - have used it numerous times on various computers.
Anyone have any thoughts?
