Hello guys,

I am currently working in Ms sql server 2008 and ArcGIS server 10.1. I made a copy of my database in Ms SQl (just not to work on my original database) and I wanted to work on this copy connecting in ArcGIS server. While trying to connect in the ArcGIS server, I am getting an error : FAILED TO CONNECT TO THE SPECIFIED SERVER. DO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE? OPERATION FAILED. The new copy have the same permission as the original and its on the same server as the original one. I will be thankful if anyone can tell me how to fix this error or any suggestion :)
