I am trying to get a list of server databases from within my visual studio windows forms project. I am using the following to the a list of available servers and everything works ok:  

Dim dataTable = SmoApplication.EnumAvailableSqlServers(False)
 datServers.ValueMember = "Name"
 datServers.DataSource = dataTable

I am using this code to list all of the databases for the past servers.  It works fine and returns all of the databases for some servers but others I get a connection error.    All of the severs are SQL server 2008 R2  

  Dim server As New Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server(xServer)
            For Each db As Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database In server.Databases
                datCombo.Items.Add(db.Name)
            Next


I can figure out why it works for one sever but not the other.

Any help would be appreciated.

Can you connect to the other server in SSMS? Do you have the appropriate permissions?

permissions on both servers are the same.    

Also, when I an trying to list the databases for a particular server im not using a username or password and it works on one server.

Error #5 is Access Denied. Are you sure the user exists in all SQL Server instances? And has the right privileges?

I understand that Error #5 is an access is denied error.      I am not passing a username or password and the machine that is making the call is part of the domain.

Sure. But not passing a SQL user credential should mean that's using current user domain credential and is that user credential that you need to check if exists in all SQL Server instances.

I am developing this on a Windows 7 laptop using VS2010 that is logged into the same domain and the SQL servers.   Both  of the SQL servers have a login configured that is the same as what I use to log in to the domain with my laptop.

The errors are always on the same SQL Server instances? If so, can you connect to that instances remotely?
