Configure Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP2 for use with GlasPacLX Follow


Once Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP2 (SQL) has been installed, it will still need to be configured.  Without the changes in this article, no other workstations will be able to attach to SQL.

Configure connection protocols

Click on START > All Programs > Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 > Configuration Tools, and select SQL Server Configuration Manager.

Once it opens it should look like this:

Open SQL Server Network Configuration > Protocols for GTS

Right-click on Named Pipes and select Enable, click yes or OK at the warning message.  Replete this process for TCP/IP.

Before completing this next step, make sure that no one is logged on to GlasPacLX.

Select SQL Server Services, and right-click on SQL Server (GTS).  Click on the Restart option.

Close SQL Server Configuration Manager
