SQL Server 2008 error cannot connect to server

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts DBA’s,

While working in a project when I try to connect to a SQL Server 2008 I stuck up with an error message. It says that cannot connect to the server. I have the all authorities to connect to the server but still it says cannot connect. Do I need to try with a different person? Please help me. Thanks.

Possibly, you’re trying to enter the credentials into a wrong window that is making such issue. Here’s where to insert the data into the right place.

  1. Start SQL Server Management Studio 2008.
  2. When the error message pops up, click “Cancel”.
  3. Click on “New Query”.

Now, the perfect window will appear where you should insert your credentials.
