Unanswered: SQL Server Does not exit or access denied
I am using sql server 2000 with service pack 3a
I have install same copy for database server at two windows 2000 server box with SP4.
I have been connected both server on LAN and replicate our required data from one to another. It's working fine.
In actual implementation both server would be connected via ISDN Dialup
Total distance between two server is maximum 40 KM.
I apply same method like lan on ISDN Dial up.
1. Given all permission equvallent to administrator to new user
2. Login by new user
3. Install database server at both end.
4. Dial by one place to another.
5. Ping each other by ip address.
6. By dialup place , I can ping new static IP address given by dial.
7. Dial in place I can ping both IP address newok card as well as new dialip IP
8. Search IP address (RAS Base)., Ping also to remote IP.
I didn’t ping physical network IP address. I can’t brows simply, I can’t ping domain name but I am able to ping remote IP.
I got error at the time of registration - 'Specify Sql server not found, Connection Open Connected()'
10. I try to user client network utility again get error as under-
Add 2nd server by client network utility at the another
Try to connect at got error-
Unable to connect to server test
Server msg 17 level 16 srare 1
ODBC Sql server driver [TCP/IP Socket] sql server doesn't exit
I didn't understand why I getting error in registraion of one server to another, while both can be registered to each other in LAN environment.
Let me help , I am trying to that for last 4day and night but not yet got any conclussion
My first guess would be that you need to establish either VPN (which should resolve all of your problems), or at the very least minimal TCP/IP for SQL Server (UDP 1433 for a default instance, 1434 + instance ports for named instances) which is more fragile, but probably sufficient.
Due to the potential complexity of the solution (which may involve knowledge of your ISDN provider and both of your LAN configurations), I'd recommend opening a case with MS-PSS (Microsoft Professional Support Services). This is probably more information about your setup than you want to publish on the Internet!
