I am trying to export a database from a SQL Server 2005 to SQL Sever 2014
I use SQL Studio installed on the "2014" machine
The "2005" is on another (production) machine
In Studio, I connect to both server then on the 2005 item, I right click, select Export and fill in the fields.
Then GO, and I get this after a while
Login timeout expired
A network-related or instance-specific error has occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. Server is not found or not accessible. Check if instance name is correct and if SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. For more information see SQL Server Books Online.
Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2].  (Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 11.0)
I verified the configurations and both server have named pipes enabled
