I am no dba by any means. The unfortunate one tasked with migrating a CRM to a new server. The server is Windows Server 2012 R2 with all patches installed. I've installed MS SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP2 Advanced. I've installed the CRM (tigerpaw) per their instructions.
The error is [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied. The error comes up, when I try to connect with the crm database utility from the server itself.
I've searched for any info. I've enabled both TCP and NamedPipes in SQL Configuration Manager. I've set SQL to listen on specific IP addresss and TCP port 1433. Rebooted server. Running netstat -a at cmd prompt does not list port 1433 as a listening port.
What am I missing?
Thanks for the help!
