I have recently installed sqlexpress 2005 on a xp machine i have activated all tcp/ip settings needed aswell as that all services are running that i know of but i still have an error popping up in a virtual machine that i have created trying to connect to the sqlexpress server the error reads connection failed SQLSTATE '08004'
SQL Server Error: 4060
server rejected the connection; connection to the selected database has been denied
can any one suggest any other ways to get this sql client communicating with the sql server!!
its ripping my head apart maybe because im just a begginer
