    Unanswered: SQL Server status

    Hi All,

    If the server name is given, how to tell the sever is up and running fine WITHOUT connecting to it.

    Thank you.

    You can ping a server to see if it responds..?

    This is not an indication if the server is running fine, but it is certainly a good initial test.

    Keep in mind that these aren't "trick questions", they represent how many ways I see to interpret your question.

    Which name do you have (Windows machine name, SQL Server name, Cluster resource group, other)? What do you want to discover?

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    You can test the port service if the same is up, in this case 1433, with telnet command.

    telnet ip_address_or_name 1433

    it's a simple check port.

    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.
