I installed new sqlexpress 2015 in my server. While installing it asked to create instance which I did and all installed successfully.
When I open, sql server configuration manager - it shows “SQL Server(mssqlserver)” running.
I believe mssqlserver which in brackets is my instance name ??? Am I correct
And am trying to restore a database, into this new instance. Which fails- it says network related or instance specific error
And I don’t have sqlmanagemnet studio. It did not install with sqlexpress.
Do I need sqlmanagement studio to be installed ??? Am I seeing my instance name correctly ??
Any help would be great
