I installed on a w2k/sp4 local machine SQLEXPRESS.
I copied the database also to the localmachine
With the sqlexpressmanager I attached the database. Everythinks looks fine.
I quit the manager, but then I start the manager again. Now the manager can't find the sqlserver.
Timeout Expired is the message.
Why is that? I installed SQLEDXPRESS on a lot of machines. No problems. But those machine the manager lost the connection after the first time.
Restart the Server and check whether the SQL Server services are up and running fine. If not set the start up as automatic and restart the services by using appropriate service account.
You can also check SQL Server configuration manager.
