Do you have the Named Pipes protocol turned on? If so turn off protocol and restart the SQL Services.

Named Pipes depends on a unique token that is provided by a single domain controller. If that DC goes off line (even a reboot) the token is no longer valid. Use TCP onl for remote access.

Actually got it to work.  The logon defaulted to NT AUTHORITY. I changed the log on as : to This account by entering the administrator of the domain  and password <servername\administrator> then restart services.

Thanks. But will definitely keep your suggestion in mind in case an issue occur when rebooted. So far rebooted this  server it's working.

It is a giant security hole to use the Domain Admin account as the SQL Server logon account. That would allow anyone who has to the SQL Server to get to anything on the domain.

The best practices suggest building a specific account that only has permissions to the specific folders that are needed.

My lazy way of doing it is to build a domain account that is a local admin on the server but a regular user on the domain.
