Hi All,

we have a problem with a clients server, basically they are running 2012 essentials with SQL 2012 - we have the database running and working on the server ok but the SQL string doesn't appear to let me client machines connection to it.

The errors is:-

Connection to SQL Server failed - [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect().[SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

SQL String Used:-

Provider=SQLOLEDB;Server=SERVERNAME\SQLEXPRESS;Database=customer;Trusted_Connection=yes;

We have tried turning off the firewall with no luck.

any ideas?

thanks again

1st place for connections strings is http://www.connectionstrings.com/sql-server-2012

on there trusted connection is
Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;Trusted_Connection=True;

Open in new window

Hi all. We managed to fix this. The SQL Browser service was disabled, we started this and everything started to work. Thanks for your help.
