Unable to connect with Enterprise Manager

I am attempting to connect to a remote default instance of SQL Server
2k on Win2k using Enterprise Manager from my local host but receive a
"SQL Server registration failed, timeout expired" error message each
time.

I am able to connect using Query Analyzer when specifying the IP
address of the server (I am also specifying the IP address in my
Enterprise Manager connection), am able to ping the server from the
command line, and am able to telnet to port 1433. I have tried
connecting both before and after creating an appropriate alias in
Client Network Utilities all to no avail.

I ran SQL Profiler while attempting to connect and do not see the
connection attempt reach the server. What could be preventing
Enterprise Manager from reaching/connecting to the server while all
other utilities (including profiler) are fine?

Thanks in advance.

It was the timeout setting. Thanks for your help.

One possibility is the timeout setting - the default for QA is 15 seconds,
but it's only 4 seconds in EM. You might try increasing the EM login timeout
to 15 also (Tools menu, Options, Advanced) and see if that resolves the
issue. If not, I've seen recommendations to register the server without
using the wizard.

Good day. I was able to connect to a database server using SQL Server Enterprise Manager. The Server name specified on the tree is JOMARGON(Windows NT). But no server was detected using either Visual Studio .NET and SQL Server's query analyzer. I highlighted one database (master) on the SQL Server Enterprise Manager and chose 'SQL Query Analyzer' under the 'Tools' menu. It worked. The Title of the Query Analyzer window is SQL Server...

I would like to reinstall the enterprise manager of sql server 2000, and i have currently sql server 2000 SP4 installed on it. I googled on it, and read that installation of enterprise manager is possible from the setup disk, however, this is not possible: it rejects because of the service pack. How can I reinstall enterprise manager, without haveing to uninstall sql completely? Thanks Prem

I have a couple new servers - Windows 2003 R2 - with SQL Server 2000 SP4 installed. They are all Active/Active clustered instances (my first ones). I am trying to create database links to other SQL Server instances, but there are 3 that I cannot connect to. The dblink works if I connect to the instance as "sa", but not as my Windows Authenticated account. We use Active Directory and I am in the Administrator group on all of the...

OK, I had an issue with this and found lots of advice that did not apply, so I'm posting what I found hoping it might help someone else. Here's the sitch: you have a COM app that calls to a .Net assembly which in turn calls a web service. You know the web service is reachable and that the COM app is able to instantiate your .Net assembly (because you RegAsm'ed it and it's good to go). However, when you attempt to make a call to the web...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
