Can't create a (Server Group ? Instance?) for SQL Server 2012
info - See Graphic Below
I'm using SQL Server Express 2008 and a customer has a database from SQL Server 2012 that I have to look at. I installed SQL Server 2012 Express on my local computer and can't seem to add a database.
I created a (Server Group ? Instance? - I'm not sure what you call it) of BCData\Exp_2012
which has a white dot.
BCData\Exp_2008 my older server on the local machine has a green arrow and allows me to restore a 2008 database.
How do I create a 2012 instance where I can restore a 2012 database.
Note: I can't restore the 2012 database to BCData\Exp_2008
Note2: When I right click on BCData\Exp_2012 - go to properties an click the test button I get the below error.
Thanks in advance for any help.
