SQL 2008 Express - only can connect after browsing share
Posted on 2011-03-15
I am having an odd problem with an instace of SQL 2008 Express.
You cannot connect to the server using management server from a remote system until you browse to a network share on that server.
We are using SQL authentication, the server is a cloud server connected over a VPN that is not a member of the domain. It does have multiple IP addresses, both a public nic and private nic
After browsing the share it works fine but it seems you need to browse first, otherwise you get an error that it
Any ideas as to what may be causing this?
