Hi Noor

I'm pasting the SAP note for you:

TCP/IP might not be enabled in the SQL Server Configuration Manager

1.Properties for SQL server selected to allow SQL server &

Windows authentication.

- To do this: In SQL server Management studio-Right click on Server -Properties - Security -

choose Allow SQL server & Windows authentication

2. Under Microsoft SQL Server 2005 -> configuration tools ->

Configuration Manager - client protocols - enable the tcp/ip

3.In SQL server configuration manager SQL server 2005 Network configuration - enable the TCP/IP

4. In SQL Server 2005 Surface Area Configuration

- Surface Area Configuration for services and connections

- Expand SQL 2005 - Database Engine - Remote Connections

- Choose Local and remote connections and select using both TCP/IP nad named pipes

5. In SQL Server Management Studio -> Right click on the server instance -> stop the service and start again.

Hope this helps
