Unable to connect to remove SQL Server Express 20476
Posted on 2015-01-29
Hi I have two servers one running SBS2003 and one running Win2k8R2. The 2k8 server is running SQL Server Express.
The SBS Version is: 9.0.5057
THe 2k8 Version is: 10.52.4000
The 2k8 version logs on using the "Local System" account
Both servers are part of the same domain.
I would like to connect to this server from the SBS2003 machine.
When I try to connect I receive the following error:
A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified) (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)
