I get this:

Cannot connect to server.

A network related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server.The server was not found or accessible....


I'm able to ping to the server though...

THanks

Can you connect through another client? What happens when you try and connect via sqlcmd? Is the SQL Browser service running? Is this a named instance?

Just trying to cycle through routine things to check...

This has nothing to do with the versions of SSMS and SQL Server, it's just a plain old connectivity problem. The machine you are connecting from cannot get in touch with the SQL Server instance at all. This can be due to a number of reasons:

1) You mispelled the server name.
2) You misspelled the instance name.
3) You are connecting from a different computer, but the instance is only set up to accept local connection.
4) The browser server is not running, and you try to use an instance name.
5) There is a firewall blocking the port, SQL Server is listening on.
6) There is a firewall blocking port UDP 1434 which the Browser service uses.

This is list is not likely to be exhaustive. This topic in Books Online is a good trouble-shooter: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms345318%28v=sql.110%29.aspx

Hi Friends,

I''m not able to figure out what the problem is.. ODBC/OSQL doesn't work either.. I checked sql server does allow remote connections.. Not really sure what is missing.. I'm trying the alternative to download Management studio 2012 for my pc (windows XP SP3 - 32bit).. I downloaded only the Management studio from the link below.

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/editions/2012-editions/express.aspx

When I run SQLManagementStudio_x86_ENU.exe, I get the error message 'The Operating system on this computer does ot meet the minimum requirements for SQL Server 2012...' I did download the 32-bit option.. Please help...

Thanks a lot
Erland Sommarskog

Exactly what the error message says. SQL 2012, both SSMS and the server itself, requires at least Windows Vista or Windows 2008. It will not run on Windows XP.

As for why you are not able to connect, we can only point to troubleshooters as we don't see your environment. As I mentioned, there are a lot things that can be wrong.

Are you able to connect to the server from any computer? Remotely or locally?
