Installing CRM is giving SQL Server connectivity error RRS feed

  • Question

  • While installing Microsoft CRM 4.0, I'm getting the below error

    Error : A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)

    Note: SQL Server 2008 available in another machine & able to access it through an Alias created in this machine
