Hi!

How do I add server name to MSSQL 2008 Express Studio Management?
I added an alias to the SQL Configuration Manager, but it is not listed in the server name drop down of MSSQL 2008 Express Studio Management.
Please be specific.
TIA

The server name field allows you to type the name in. If your computer can connect to the machine, the machine name will appear in the list the next time you launch SSMS.

I did use mixed authentication.
I found the problem just not sure how to fix it.
I imported the sql database from our old server.
The user names are present but no login names were imported.
Each user name shows "Without Login".
Is there a way to add a Login to each user name?
TIA
