I have a standalone Windows Server 2012 machine running SQL Server 2012.
I am trying to create a UDL file on my Windows 8 machine. I have created a blank file called test.udl and double clicked on it.
I put in the details as per the first image below, and click on drill down arrow for the "Select the d
atabase on the server:" option, and first of all get the error as shown in image 2 and then the dialog shown in image 3.
I have turned off the firewall on the Windows Server, but it still does not work. It doesn't work if I use the IP address of the server either.
If I perform the same procedure on the Windows Server itself, then everything works OK.
Any ideas please?
