While connecting to SQL Server 2005, I am getting the following error.

"An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (Provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 2)"

I restarted the Server and then tried to connect to SQL Server, it is allowing me to connect. Whenever the problem comes, I am restarting the server. But I want the actual solution for this problem.

Can anybody help me out in solving this issue.

are you connecting to the local server or remote server?
connecting using windows login/sqlserver login?

Yes, I am connecting to a local server.

Using SQL Server Authentication.

Check if all the Services are running in sql server configuration manager
check the protocols if they are enabled.

You sometimes get the same error, when you have entered a wrong userid/pwd.

no worries, managed to solve it myself. basically i made sure all services were running as previously posted, and then, funnily enough, running SQL Server Management Studio as administrator did the trick!

Thanks anyways :o)

Administrator shouldn't matter, it's the accounts that are set up in SQL Server. Likely the local administrator's group is set up as a login in SQL.

are you sure you have use the correct username and choose the right instance?
the instance should be like this : server name/instance
