UNABLE TO CONNECT TO SERVER

If you place an image of your server on a rebuilt server, rename it and
change the SID. You get an error message “UNABLE TO CONNECT” when you
use the SQL Query analyzer on a desktop computer to connect to the
server (hosting the image). If you add the server (hosting the image)
to the Windows2000 server domain/active server and restart the server
(hosting the image), you get the following error message: "YOUR SQL
SERVER INSTALLATION IS EITHER CORRUPT OR HAS BEEN TAMPERED WITH (UNKNOWN
PACKAGE ID). PLEASE RERUN SETUP."

Wouldn't you think changing the name, the sid and adding it to a domain
would be enough to access it. I even created a new ODBC connection.

Hi

You may want to see the bit about dropping and re-adding the server.

If you also have problems with orphaned users if this is not on the same
domain.
