I am having troubles creating a new Server 2008 R2 SQL Server, I built a 2008 r2 server, then installed SQL server 2008 R2, selected all the defaults, changed the service accounts to a local account I created.
However when I try to connect to the Database Engine from the Management Studio, I get the attached error. I have checked all the services are running.
Anyone got anyidea? or should I just delete the server and start again?
