Using Power BI to connect to On Prem SQL Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI

    what causes this error when connecting to On Prem SQL server 2016, using Power BI?

    Details: "Microsoft SQL: 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)"

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards
