Cannot connect to the configuration database.

This is the message that shows up in Windows Internet Explorer when my users try to open the companyweb\default.aspx. I am running a Windows Small Business Server 2008 Prem. My users are running Windows 7 Pro. The only changes that have happened on my server or workstations is windows updates.

Correct, usually is this due to fact that the SQL Server service is down. Just restart the service (not the entire server) and you're back on the road.

Thank you for your comments. But SQL services are all up and running.
This was the first thing I checked.

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

I have had this issue before and I have to pay MS a butt load of money to repair. It's time that they admitt that ithere is an issue with this side of Sharepoint. An update or a well documented fix for this issue would be nice.

This issue also comes with the users being asked to log in to http://companyweb\default.aspx
But the users are logged into their PC's. So it should not need a login to get to this page.

The Sharepoint server cannot talk to the SQL server.  Are they on the same box?  If so, what is the Service account used to connect to the SQL server?

Can you get into Central Administration?

dduck10Author Commented:
Central Administrator will not start and this is a SBS 2008 Prem server. So if you know what a SBS box is everything is on this box Exchange, sharepoint, Terminal server ect.

SQL and Sharepoint are on same server. What is SSMS?? The firewall is setup just fine. This all started after a WUS updated the server and workstations.
