Unanswered: SQL Server does not exist or access denied
I've recently installed SQL 2000 over a copy of an expired beta version of SQL Server 7.0.
I am getting the error SQL Server does not exist or access denied when I try to connect using localhost the IP Address.
I can ping the address. I have tried all of the suggestions on the Microsoft Web-site. I've even uninstalled and re-installed it but I still get the same error.
When I try to setup a DNS the server is not listed. What's wrong!!
