Cannot Connect to SQLServer

Post by redhead3226 » Fri Mar 21, 2014 2:20 pm

Good Morning,

I cannot connect to our SQL server in order to reverse engineer a database. I even tried another SQL server database and couldn't connect. I even tried pinging both IP addresses with no success and many multiple formats for the host and instance or domain name. I even have a database user name and cannot login. I have other modeling tools on my computer that have no issues connecting to these databases. I used your help menu and installed SQLServer Express and made all the changes with still no success. Please help me figure this out. :oops:

Press F1 in DbSchema and follow the steps to connect to your Sql Server.
Please let us know if it worked.

I guess by now that you have solved the problem.

But this may help.... ... 2008-2012/

I had a LOT of issues connecting to SQL Server 2008 and 2012, and it was not the firewall, just the changed security implement in these versions of MS-SQL.

In the long run, I would recommend following the security defaults that Micrpsoft sets.

Cannot Connect to SQLServer

Post by quamiTam » Mon Feb 04, 2019 7:30 pm

I decide to use RR and MySQL with my project. I have some experience in using SQL with other computer languages. However I have problem to get start with RR. My problem is:

Are there any sample scripts and tutorials to use RR connect and query with MySQL database?

Thanks and best regards
