SQL Server is installed in the server, i am trying to connect to the existing application catalog in the adminstudio. When i click on catalog and then give the credentials in the standalone section andthen click on test it gives the following error:

"[DBNETLIB}[ConnectionOpen(Connect()).]SQLServer does not exist or access denied"

I want to connect to the application catalog since i want to wrk with conflict server where in the connection to application catalog is a must.

I even tried adding some registry keys and restarted the system, even this dint work.

Please suggest me on this,

Thanks in advance

Hi Amala,
have you ever connect to this server by conflict solver succesfully? or it's a new creation DB?
These are the steps I follow to connect, to a SQL Server too in a separate server :
- Open Conflict Solver
- Catalog
- Connect
- Choose on the Existing tab : "Microsoft SQL Server or MSDE"
- Open
- Type the IP nº as is, with No \\ or "" (example:
- Choose your Login, type the username and pw if necessary.
- Choose in "Catalog" the right database.
- OK

That's all.
If there're still any errors I think the server should be revised by the admin person, and/or add you to the server users.

Hope it helps!
