    Check if all services are running in SQL Server Parameter Manager

    Check the logs if they are ok.

  • Why SQL Server is not connecting?

    Another reason might be that the SQL Server Browser service is not running. If some services are down, you will have trouble connecting to named instances (when they start using dynamic ports). It’s also entirely possible that Sql Server isn’t configured to listen for TCP connections and normally only allows so-called pipes.

    How did you fix the error above ?

    I have the same problem! please help

  • Are you sure you’ve chosen the correct username and instance?

    The instance should look like this: servername/instance

    Your username should look like this if you are using Windows: Computer au Name /username
