Can't Connect To Local Database Engine


 

I am trying to run MS SQL Server Management Studio Express. According to what I read, I can connect by selecting Database engine, then on server name, I put my computer name sqlexpress. I am using Windows Authentication. Every time, I get:

Not Able To Connect To The Local Database With (local) As Server Name
I am facing a problem in connecting to the local database with server name as (local).

I have installed SQL Server 2005 in my machine. When I try to connect to the SQL server with the server name as SUNILKUMAR I am able to connect but when I try to connect to the same server with the server name as (local) I am not able to connect. SUNILKUMAR is my machine name and SQL server is running locally.

if anyone can help me what is the problem in this case it is highly appriciated.

Cannot Connect To Database Engine
Hi,

I've just installed a brand new instance of SQL on a new server.  It's for our Helpdesk/Inventory software.  All I needed to install was the DB Components and the Tools (primarily for Management Studio).  I did not install SQL as a default instance, but called it TRACKIT8 (software using this instance).  I have subsequently installs SP2 before trying to connect to the DB.

I am unable to conect to the DB Engine via Management Studio.  In the Server name: field, there is a blank space, so I try to browse for a server, but I get nothing.  I try to manually type the name of the server (NIASSQL2, localhost etc) into the field, but I cannot connect to the engine at all.  I can see the services for the Server and Server Agent have started in the SQL Server Configuration Manager and I am able to change certain field in the properties of the Server and Agent (change the path of the error logs).

Is there something I am supposed to configure before I try to connect via the Management Studio?  I am looking to change the paths of the Data Files, as I don't want them on my C: partition.  Plus I have other instances I want to create and install.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

Cannot Connect To Database Engine
Hi! I have a little problem and I need your help.

I have recently installed SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition. I did not install all the features, just the Database engine and Analysis Services. I also updated everything with SQL Server SP2.

So far, so good. But when I tried to connect to the Database Engine, I get a little window with the following message:

"Cannot connect to Valentin-PC (server name)."

"Login failed for user - User Name - ( Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 18456 )".

I have tried just about everything, but to no avail. What is strange is the fact that I can connect to the other server type that I have installed (Analysis Services). No connection problems there.

Can anyone help?

Mucho gracias!

Can't Connect The Database Engine
I just installed SQL server Enterprise 2005 and connected database engine in SQL server management studio, but it is blank space when choose 'browse for more' at server name field. What's reason to cause this problem?  

 

Questions for this problem:

1. Do I need to open the TCP port 1433 in firewall by hand for connect database engine? 

2. I can€™t find the sqlbrowser.exe in SQL server/90/ folder, can I copy this file into it.

3. The SQL server mobile is work; I can connect the new created database. What€™s different to use SQL server mobile and database engine?

4. I got five discs from Microsoft; I have installed DVD server application and pack 2. Do I need to install the library?

 
Thanks for any help.

How To Stop The Connect To Database Engine Dialog
 

I am working (or trying to work) in Management Studio. I have one database that I use on my one and only machine. ( I am not using any of the default databases.) I have several queries saved as files, which I open as needed. Every time I open a file I get that VERY ANOYING Connect to Database Engine dialog box. OK, it's no big thing. I don't use Server Authentication so all I have to do is hit enter and I get connected. But why should I even have to hit enter once after I'm already connected?
 
How can I MAKE IT STOP?
 
Thanks,
 
Gregory

No More Able To Connect To My SQL Server 2005 Database Engine
Hello,
I have installed SQL Server 2005 in my PC and during the installation I
have created a predefined instance (I have used Windows autentication).
I could use correctly SQL Server till some days ago, when I changed the
password of my PC login profile.
Now, when I open SQL Server, if I click on the "Connect" button,
the following error message appears (I translate it from italian version)

Unable to connect to "CARLO"
Further information:
An error has occurred while you were trying to establish a connection to
the server. When you connect to SQL Server 2005, this error can be generated
because SQL Server doesn't allow remote connections under the predefined
settings. (provider: Provider Named Pipes, error: 40 - Unable to open a
connection to SQL Server) (Micorsoft SQL Server, error:2)

I'm sure that the error raises because I have changed my PC access
password (the program worked correctly before), but in the "Connect to
Server" window the user name and the password text boxes are disabled, so
I can't insert the new password...
Can you suggest what have I to do?

Thank you very much

HELP!! Cannot Connect To SQL Server 2005 Developer Database Engine
OK.
 
I'm using Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition and I installed it under "Local System" on Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate.
 
I understand that there are issues of course that occur with this, however I can't seem to understand why what I'm doing isn't working. I'm not using this on any server, just to test out ASP.NET 2.0 applications - nothing more.
 
I'm getting this error:

I'm really at a loss on what to do.

Remeber Password On Connect To Database Engine Dialog
Is there any description on what the Remember Password check box on this dialog box does?  As far as I can tell, it doesn't do anything.  Every time I open an item from a project, or create a new Query, I get asked for the password, no matter how many times I have given it for the Server before.
 
It looks so useful, but is frustrating not knowing how to use it.
 
Thanks,

How To Register Local Server Under Database Engine In SQL Server 2005?
I want to create a database on my local machine and work with it. But I am not able to see the name of my local server under "Database Engine" in the list of "Registered Servers".
 
Options I tried:
 
(1) In Registered Servers window, On Database Engine, I right clicked and in that selected "Update Local Server Registration"
 
(2)  In Registered Servers window, On Database Engine, I right clicked and in that selected "New" -> Server Registration.
In "New Server Registration" Window, in "Server Name" drop down I clicked "Browse for more" but still in "Browse for Servers" window, I am not able to see the name of my local server in "Local Servers" tag under Database Engine.
 
(3) If I do File -> Connect Object Explorer -> Connect to Server window in "Server name" drop down box, if I click "Browse for more", I am able to see local server name eg. "XYZ" under Analysis Services, Reporting Services, and Integration Services but not under "Database Engine"
 
Please help me create a new database engine in SQL Server 2005 or list my local server under "Database engine" ?
 
Thanks

conString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Persist Security Info=True;Initial Catalog=" & dbName & ";Network Address=" & IPAddress & ";Data Source=" & DataSource & " ;User ID=" & UserId & " ; Password=" & Password

Plz also inform me about the restriction imposed in connectivity by any of the window operating system such as that win 98 wont work or work!

There is no firewall involved. The two computers are in the same room and connected directly to the internet.

Even the ping is not going to either computer.

So what could be the possible problem and the solution.

Cannot Connect To SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Engine
I work in an environment where everyone is there own server.  I can connect to a collegeau's SQL Server by using the Windows Authentication method in the Database Engine but if I try to connect to the Reporting Services Engine it says that I am not allowed to connect due to permission violations.  How do I get adequate permissions to do so? I have all of the components for Reporting Services installed and I am actively using it.  I want to be able to test the functionality of the RSScriptor before deploying it out to others.

The client now wants the PDA using SQL Mobile to synchronize with the local subscirber database on the laptop using active sync. They dont want to do it via WIFI to the IIS Server at the central server

I have been reading for days and I am still unsure whether this is possible to do.

I know Appforge provide a conduit for palm to access synchronization but not local sql databases

I would appreciate your help immensley

Cannot Connect To Local Instance
I have just recently installed MS SQL Server 2005 Developer edition. I have installed SP2.

Today when I try to connect via Management Studio, I get the following error:
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.) (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)

I installed it as a default instance.

I recently added a login with dbo privileges. I have tried logging in with that sql account and also with windows authentication to no avail.

Thank you for any help.

Connect To Remote SQL Server From Local Web App
I have a SQL Server 2005 instance which resides on a dedicated server hosted by a third party. I am able to connect to this server through my local SQL Management Studio, however, my local ASP.NET 2.0 web application cannot connect. I get the error below. The connection string I use is formatted as...
Connection String: 
Server=thesever;uid=myuserid;pwd=mypassword;database=mydatabase
Error:
Failed to connect to database: An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)
The hosting providr claims that the SQL Server configuration settings are as they should be as fars as TCP/IP and Named Pipes are concerned. Does anyone know what might be going on?

hello,

Sql server type: database engine
server name:

I remember the server name being sqlexpress (I think that was the default name during the install).

OR are they asking for my computer name? because I tried that also and it gave me an error saying "the default installation doesn't allow remote connections"

Can I Connect To SQLExpress Instance Using (local)
Hello,

I am using the following connection string to connect to SQL Server 2005 Express Edition installed on my local PC.
string sqlstr = "Server=(local);Database=MyDB;User ID=sa;Password=sa;Trusted_Connection=False";

And it gives me the following error. The string works fine in computer with SQL Server 2000 instance but fails with 2005. The string also fails for "Server = localhost".
However the string works very fine if I use the name of Server 2005 i.e ./SQLExpress

===================================

Cannot connect to (local).

===================================

An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)

------------------------------
Error Number: 2
Severity: 20
State: 0


------------------------------

 

Now the main problem is that, of course I could use a named instance, but since I am embedding the Connection String in a dll file so that any user can use it to connect it to the local instance of the SQL Server 2005 installed in his/her computer, I need to use "server = localhost". Doesn't SQL 2005 support this. If yes, where could i find option to enable it?

I have enabled every option available in surface area configuration for SQL Server 2005, but nothing seems to help out. I even use local as well as remote connections using both TCP/IP and named pipes.
Can nyone help me out?

Cannot Connect To Local SQL Server 2005 Dev.
During my install of SQL Server 2005 Developers edition, I got an error that Reporting Services could not connect to SQL Server.  After completing the installation I was unable to connect to the local service using an domain account (that's an admin on my machine) or the SA account.  I've retried uninstalling and reinstalling numereous times and no success.  I was able to login to the IP addess with the SA account only.
 
I did set the config for remote access...
 
Shared Memory is Enabled
 
Named Pipes is Enabled with Pipe Name = \.pipesqlquery
 
TCP/IP is Enabled, Listen All, IP Address active and enabled for 127.0.0.1 and network address, TCP Dynamic ports not set
 
When I login with an IP address and an local admin account I get this error:
 
Login failed for user ''. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 18452)

 
When I try to login to the machine name with a local admin account I get this message:
 
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 10061)

 
When I try to login to the machine name with the SA account I get this message:
 
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 10061)
 
I can login with the SA account using the IP address.
I can login with a local admin account for 127.0.0.1
 
Any ideas what's going on?  Why doesn't uninstalling and reinstallingh fix this?  Is there a tool that will purge the registry of all remnants after an uninstall?   Any help would be appreciated.

Can't Connect To Local User Instance
Just when I think I have this stuff figured out, it bites me back everytime.

I'm
trying to deploy an mdf out to a different machine, and attached to it with local user instance. I connect without problem from my development
machine with a local user instance, which also has Express Manager resident,
and I can connect to a server instance without problem.

What I can't do is
copy the .mdf database over to another workstation, which has Sql Native
Client installed, and connect to the database using a local user
instance! I can connect to a server instance without problem from this
other workstation. Here's my connect string for local user instance
that works fine from my dev machine:

Provider=SQLNCLI.1;Persist
Security Info=False;Integrated Security=SSPI;Data
Source=.sqlexpress;AttachDBFileName=<full path_name and mdf
filename>;User Instance=true;

The error I get upon trying to connect with other stations is:

Error -2147467259
Database not found or cound not connect to database

I've
tried this every way I know how. I've copied the database from my dev
machine both with and without having detached the database from the
local instance. I've tried detaching from a server instance and copying
the file over. Nothing works, and I've done this before! What gives with this thing?

Can't Connect To Remote Server, My App Works In Local Only???
Hello,
i've developed a website using VB.NET, and SQL SERVER 2K, in my dev environment works properly (SQL Server and WEB SERVER are in the same machine).
When i put everything in the target machine, where the webserver is but not the sql, i get the following error:
Sql SErver does not exist or access denied

I've tried so many ways to do this, ODBC, ADO.NET, OLEDB.....and everything ends in the same error.
Also if i try to connect with ODBC (from odbc manager) it seems to work (test connection succesfull), but in asp.net nothing works.
I've tried to access the server with:
INSTANCE_NAME
SERVER_NAMEINSTANCE_NAME
IP,PORT

I think (they are checking this), that the auth mode is set to MIXED MODE.

Any idea to save my life?? ;)

Thanks ppl

How Can I Connect OWC PivotTable To A Local Cube File?
:eek:

I want to use the Office Web Components (v10) PivotTable embedded in a web page. The examples and tutorials I've been able to find on MSDN all use the same architecture: The initial pivottable configuration is created by instantiating the object server-side and programmatically configuring it. The XMLDATA property is then read and sent to the client. At the client, script sets the XMLDATA property. So far so good, all makes sense. Then my problem: The PivotTable is then connected to Analysis Server using an http connection string (through IIS). As my users do not have database accounts, only application accounts, I cannot allow database connection information on the client. Trouble is, the PivotTable generates MDX queries when a user reconfigures the view, and there are no hooks (events or other means) to programmatically obtain the generated MDX query - a fact that is explicitly confirmed in MSDN documentation.

This clearly means that the PT must be connected directly to it's data source. So I thought I could just create a local MOLAP cube file and download it to the client (permissible as it runs as a trusted application). But nowhere can I find any example or documention on how to do this.

This is driving me slightly insane and I have little hair left now; if anyone knows how to do it or where to find proper PivotTable documentation (rather than a collection of examples that do something else from what I need to do!) then help is greatly :p appreciated!

Unable To Connect To SQL2005 DB From Local Machine
I have an interesting problem. I am running xp pro and when I try to connect to an instance of SQL2005 running on WIN2003 using SQL Sevrer Management Studio,  I get the following error:

An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: TCP Provider, error: 0 - A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.) (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)

 This instance is protected by a vpn and is running on a clustered environment. I can connect to other SQL2000 servers that are running on a clustered environment and SQL2005 that is not clustered. 

 After adding a host file entry, I was able to connect to the server using OSQL. I was able to telnet into the port the server is listening on.

 Others in my group can connect to the server using SQL Server Management Studio with no problems. They are running Win2003 Server. I originally could connect to this server, but I needed to change my password. After that I lost my remote connectivity. I can RDP into the server and map drives to the server. I map to a local administrator of this machine.

I am not sure what else to try?

Help.
