Hi,

I have installed sql server 2008r2 enterprise edition on my system.i have got the following errors such as
1) unable to connect with an instance name ..some network failure.when I repaired that software master database was not existing and database engine connection problems.

so, i uninstall and installed it properly.still iam unable to connect with default instance but i can connect through named instance and local.

Could anyone explain me the reason.when i searched on Google,someone mentioned that we don't connect through default instance.As of my knowledge i did connect through that instance before on my frnd's system.please explain me the problem.

thank you..!!!

Hi,

Default instance need not be specified as MSSQLSERVER, you just put the hostname "SINDU-PC" then connect and it should work, also ensure your firewall is enabled for defaults ports and dns properly working.

First Check weather SQL Server Instance is running and exists.
to see list of intances use
Go to command prompt and type in “osql -L” or “sqlcmd -L”.
or
use
http://www.queryingsql.com/2013/02/search-all-running-sql-server-instances.html

If instance is showing in list then check your credentials.

Thanks.......

Perhaps a silly question, but did you install a default instance? IIRC, you can install a named instance without first installing a default instance. If you only ran the install once and specified a named instance at the time, you don't have a default instance.
