Can't connect to an Azure SQL Server from PowerShell RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a SQL Azure database and I try to execute the query from PowerShell.

    I am using Invoke-Sqlcmd Command.

    I get this 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: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)

    But if I connect from Management Studio, everything is OK.

    I setup a proper firewall rule.

    Does anybody know what may happen?
