This really isn't a GIS question per se, but I'm hoping someone can get me moving in the right direction.
Today IT created a new instance of SQL Server on which I have created a new Enterprise Geodatabase. If I log into the actual machine where SQL Server resides, I can use SQL Server2014 Management Studio just fine to administer the new database. While in the same session of Management Studio, I can connect to another instance of SQl Server on a different server machine.
My problem is I can't connect to the new SQL Server Instance from my desktop machine which is on the same network/domain using SQL Server2014 Management Studio. It tosses a fairly generic error about pipes etc; sometimes it's error 2, sometimes 54 I checked the the new instance properties and 'Allow Remote Connections To This Service' is checked. I guess remotely logging into the server isn't the end of the world, but I'd rather just hit from my desk top.
