Cannot see the database using by MAP Toolkit. RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I configure MAP to see its database inside my local MS SQL Management Studio while it's filling out by MAP withotu reattaching/restoring it? I can run the MAP database backup and then restore it in my local SQL Server Express and run my queries, but I cannot see the real live MAP database in my MS SQL Management Studio while it's gorwing up. Why?

  • You connect to the MAP instance of localDB by using “(localdb)\maptoolkit” for the server name.

  • You have to use SSMS 2012 to connect to LocalDB.

  • That's because you are using the computer's host name instead of (localdb).
