SYMPTOMS

When you try to install the SoftGrid Virtual Application Server, you receive the following error message:
An error occurred while attempting to connect to the database:

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, point to Configuration Tools, and then click SQL Server Configuration Manager.
  2. In the console tree, expand SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration, and then click Protocols for MSSQLSERVER.
