Hi all,

I am trying to connect to the SQLServerexpress(2014) using ArcMAp>Catalog>DatabaseServers>Adddatabase server. But, I get the error saying that "Cannot connect to the database server. Failed to connect to the database server". Can someone help me please! I have tried all sorts of things since y/day, but no luck. I don't know what I 'm doing wrong. While installing SQL Express, I have use default instance and it gave me the instance name as MSSQLSERVER, which is what I'm supplying to the ARCmap.

Thankyou in advance.
