    Unable to connect to SQL Server

    I am unable to connect to SQL Server using isql_w or enterprise manager. The ODBC settings register successfull and the services show as started. I have tried starting SQL server in single-user mode with minimum config to see if memory is a problem but still cannot connect. The error logs show SQL as having started successfully with no errors. Has anyone got any ideas?

    If it is 6.5, try logging in standard by registering the server in EM with sa and a blank password.

    How did you try and login?

    What error message did you get when you start normal? Don't use single user mode, because the agent maybe taking that connection and messing you up. In normal mode, what error do you get?

    I don't get any error message. The EM or isql_w just hangs with the hourglass and Iv'e had to end task to get rid of it.

    If this is on your local box, I would uninstall and reinstall.
