Hi,

I have installed sql server 2005 standard edition 32-Bit in my XP desktop (VDI).I tried to connect to one of my QA server using sql server authentication mode which is running on SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition 64-Bit....but no luck.Getting error 233, stating that sql server version missmatch and access denied or server not available.

My question is, can we connect to 64-Bit SQL server instance with 32-bit SQL server ? Please let me know...

Thanks,
Vamshi..

Yes you can use the tools of a 32 bit client to talk to a 64 bit server.

Have you tried to ping the server from your VDI, are the nessesary ports open between your VDI and the server and all other general troubleshooting steps taken?
