My server is newly built, Win 2008 R2, SQL 2008  with sp2. I even have 2 different DB's in the system running right now with no problems.

I can connect to the DB using SSMS without any problem using win & SA authentication

But when I try install a new application (which puts in a new DB) on the server that SQL server 2008 is running, I get the following error

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBMSLPCN ]SQL Server does not exist or access denied

I'm not sure what is going on

you need to setup a DB user first, create a DB second, assign that user DB_Owner rights for the DB. Then attempt to use the application.

An alternative it so have an account that has DB owner rights to the entire SQL instance.

The application installs the db for me. It prompts me for a user name to use to install the db. I tried using the SA account and my win authentication

Do you need to enter an instance name if your databases are not on the default instance?

Have you tried using the SQL IP and Port by getting these details from the SQL Configuration Manager?

You could try enabling named pipes as the application may not be using TCPIP.


I would also suggest looking at your windows event logs to see if there are any failed logins... you could also try telnet'ing to the SQL port (1433 by default for the default instance) and also make sure the SQL Server is allowing remote connections.
