Funny Error

P: n/a
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When
connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that
under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.
(provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance
Specified)

I get this the frist time I open an ASP.NEt 2.0 site on my development
machine now. It started happening when I tried to use the Membership
Provider for the first time.

How do I fix this. It takes 60 seconds for this to time out before I can
start debugging now. That is a good 30 minutes a day I have to waste.

Do you happen to have SQL Server 2000 installed?

Perhaps SQL Server 2005 is not bound to the TCP port? That can happen if
there is another program using TCP Port 1433.

Go to the SQL server Configurator (or some name like that). You will
need to turn on TCPIP (turned off by default. That will fix the
problem.

TCP/IP and Named Pipes Libraries are enabled.

This only started after I tried to use the membership provder through the
web administration interface of VS 2005. It could not configure it for my
site's database for some reasone and then this started. Everything was fine
before that.

Still getting the error. Since the MS team is supposed to respond within 72
hours, I expect the answer sometime today.

Nope, this did not fix the problem:

Server Error in '/YourSellPro' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When
connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that
under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.
(provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance
Specified)
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the
current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about
the error and where it originated in the code.

SQLExpress database file auto-creation error:
The connection string specifies a local Sql Server Express instance using a
database location within the applications App_Data directory. The provider
attempted to automatically create the application services database because
the provider determined that the database does not exist. The following
configuration requirements are necessary to successfully check for existence
of the application services database and automatically create the application
services database:
If the applications App_Data directory does not already exist, the web
server account must have read and write access to the applications directory.
This is necessary because the web server account will automatically create
the App_Data directory if it does not already exist.
If the applications App_Data directory already exists, the web server
account only requires read and write access to the applications App_Data
directory. This is necessary because the web server account will attempt to
verify that the Sql Server Express database already exists within the
applications App_Data directory. Revoking read access on the App_Data
directory from the web server account will prevent the provider from
correctly determining if the Sql Server Express database already exists. This
will cause an error when the provider attempts to create a duplicate of an
already existing database. Write access is required because the web server
accounts credentials are used when creating the new database.
Sql Server Express must be installed on the machine.
The process identity for the web server account must have a local user
profile. See the readme document for details on how to create a local user
profile for both machine and domain accounts.
