"a network related or instance specific error in sql server 2008..." error in sbs 2011 standard.

    Question

  • Hi All,

    When we try to open "Sql Server 2008 R2" in SBS 2011.......... we are getting the error message" “A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 – Error Locating Server/Instance Specified) ”

    How can we resolve the issue?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ram.
