I've got a new Win2008R2 server setup which is a vm, to host a web site.

I've installed sql 2008 r2 express edition.

I can run queries fine from ssms but when the website connects through .NET sql client on the same machine I get this:

Shared Memory Provider, error: 0 - No process is on the other end of the pipe.

Full message:

A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process. (provider: Shared Memory Provider, error: 0 - No process is on the other end of the pipe.)    


The connection strings I've tried are

server=computername\sqlexpress;database=WebSite;user id=website;password=xxxx

and

server=.\sqlexpress;database=WebSite;user id=username;password=xxxx


Remote connections are enabled and as far as I can tell named pipes is enabled and I just moved it to the top in the "order" of protocols.

thanks

Disabling "shared memory provider" seems to have fixed it. Will confirm and if so will accept own answer.. thanks

Yes, good to go now. I am deeply concerned that a vanilla implementation of an MS product like this plainly does not work out of the box.

Se la vie with Microsoft.

So the solution is to disable shared memory provide in sql configuration manager.
