Hello,

I seem to have lost my ability to connect to my local server using SQL Server Management Studio. I had been using it for many months, then it just  stopped working. The strange thing is that I can connect fine with sqlcmd. I don't really know where to start looking to investigate this. I've attached some details below.

Oh geez, I forgot about that thing. Sure enough, it was stopped.

The "sa" password shown is my special "expose to the world" password. I'll change it back.

Thanks so much!

Scott.
