Hello - I am hoping someone can help me.  I need to connect to my BES database via BES Transporter service to migrate users to a new BES.  I receive the following error message.

 Error message

An error has ocurred when establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to the SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings of the SQL server does not allow remote connections.  I have found information online to check the surface configuration.  The strange issue is, I also have by backup exec software on this server - I do not see the properties for the sql configuration to just the main server.  I only see the configuration to the database area for the backup exec software.  I have attached screen shots.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. sql database shot surface configuration area

Have you made sure that you have enabled remote connections?

Hello - yes remote connections is enabled.  The weird issue is I don't see the surface configurations for the service name.  I can only see the service name for the backup exec service.  Sorry, I am very green when it comes to sql.

What is not clear to me is whether you are sharing the same server instance for your database with BackupExec.  So what you need to do is verify how many SQL Server services are actually running.  Go the the Services applet and you should find the backupexec instance, see if there are any more.

Just to be clear, when you are sitting at the server you can successfully log on to either server instance the default (SCHOMBERG) and the named instance (SCHOMBERG\BACKUPEXEC) ?  But when you are at a workstation you cannot?

Is that correct?

Then there are at least 2 possible reasons (though I am sure there are more) you can only connect on the server:
1. Remote Logins are not enabled. The following query should tell you if it is enabled:
SELECT *
FROM sys.configurations
WHERE name = 'remote access'

2. You are using a protocol not supported by the SQL Server service.
