Can't logon -- get error "Timeout exprired"
Posted on 2012-04-12
Trying to log onto db server via SSMS and get error message:
"Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operaton or the server is not responding."
I get this message when trying to log onto the db from SSMS from my own PC or running application code in Visual Studio (against a db on that db server) from my PC. However, if I go to the server's desktop then I can run SSMS and successfully connect to the db server in SSMS.
