I installed SQL Express 2005 on a server on a different Vlan and I cannot see it via SQl server Management studio express. I can see other SQL server express 2005 instanse on the same Vlan.
So to clairify:
I have SQl server Management studio express installed on my PC which is on Vlan.112.
I installed SQL Server Express 2005 on a Server that is on Vlan .5.
When I am in SQl server Management studio express and I "browse for more" servers and click the "Network Servers" tab it only shows Database Engines for instances that are on my Vlan .112.
I checked and all the SQL services are running ..ex. the SQL Server service and Browser service. Just to be sure I temporarily disabled the Firewall Service.
What am I doing wrong?
The server is a VMWARE 5 VM guest running MS 2008 R2 DataCenter
