Unable to query SQL Server 2008 SP2 on Windows Server 2008 ?

Hi,

I have successfully configured Windows Server 2008 Enterprise SP2 with SQL Server 2008 Enterprise SP2 all 64 bit,
however when I tried to access this particular SQL Server 2008 DB instance from another SQL Server 2008 SSMS in another Windows Server 2008 it failed ?

what I did is to disabled the IPv6 IP address using the regedit but still the problem hasn't been fixed even after restart ?

I have enabled the named piped as well but still no luck ?

any help please ?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Please check and configure the proper protocols using Network Configuration of SQL Server.
You may need to enable the TCP protocol.

or is this because I am running 2 instances of the DB in the same server (Physical box) ?

ok, the lesson learnt here is that:

1. make sure that firewall is always OFF - I don't know why it is tur ON by itself after system reboot (due to I disabled IPv6 from the NIC) ?
2. difference instance of DB needs different port as well.
