Hi,

We have an instance of SQL running with named pipes and TCP/IP enabled as protocols.  I want to disable named pipes.  I intend to stop the instance, disable named pipes in surface area configuration and then restart the instance.

Do I need to do anything on the clients?

Thanks

Just disabling in Surface Area Configuration and restarting the instance would suffice.

No other steps are required.
Kindly make sure that it doesn't affects your application.
