I am installing SAP business one on my terminal server. The data server installation works fine. I installed all other clients on all my regular workstations perfectly without error. However when I install a client on my terminal server (windows 2003 sever) I get the following error when trying to connect to the database.

Connection failed:
SQLState: '08001'
SQL Server Error: -1
[Microsoft][SQL Native Client]SQL Network Interfaces: Error getting enabled protocols list from registry [xFFFFFFFF].
Connection failed:
SQLState: 'HYT00'
SQL Server Error: 0
[Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Login timeout expired
Connection Failed:
SQLState: '08001'
SQL Server Error: -1
[Microsoft][SQL Native Client]An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.

there are quite a few reasons for this error like:

Enable remote connections on the instance of SQL Server that you want to connect to from a remote computer.

Turn on the SQL Server Browser service.

Configure the firewall to allow network traffic that is related to SQL Server and to the SQL Server Browser service.

have a look at below link to enable remote connection in your server.

I forgot to mention I have several mssql databases on my data server. I have their respective clients installed on this terminal server also. These clients on this terminal server also connect to my sql server without issue. They seem to be working fine and I never had an error connecting with them. During installation or afterward.

The SAP tech support logged into my system and fixed the issue. I have no clue what they did.
