Comments
  • Did you check if the Sql Server Service is running?
  • returns 0 rows affected
  • did u try using master db and runnig this
  • If it returns 0 rows TCP/IP is disabled. Enabled TCP/IP in SQL Server Configuration Manager.
  • This worked for me "in reverse": needed to find (non-default) port number of remote machine that I was connected to in SSMS.
  • SQL Native Client config? TCP/IP is Enabled. But default port is set to 1433 :/
  • @keram No - that's for clients. You want the server configuration utiltiy.
