brand newbie w/sql v2008. i did what seems to be a pretty vanilla installation -- it all looks good local, but i can't connect to it. the protocols are each enabled (tcp/ip, named pipes), and it is set to allow remote connections to the server.
i just telnetted to it -- 1433 -- that fails. i'm in the log now, i noticed it says it is listening on 1483 and 1484... not 1433.
either i did something wrong w/the install, or sql v2008 has a new default port?
i also created a linked server in management studio -- to a v2000 box -- simple selects to it fail w/this:
OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "linkedservername" returned message "Unspecified error".
OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "linkedservername" returned message "The stored procedure required to complete this operation could not be found on the server. Please contact your system administrator.".
Msg 7311, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Cannot obtain the schema rowset "DBSCHEMA_TABLES_INFO" for OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI10" for linked server "linkedservername". The provider supports the interface, but returns a failure code when it is used.
very important, i'm just in the process of getting a good v2008 instance together such that i can get comfortable w/the newness, and migrate a v2000 database post haste.
surely i am missing something pretty obvious
