Hello everyone,
I'm trying to connect Sql server in a DB server to App server so as to create the application ERP but i get this error.
Kindly assist.
 






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)
 --------------------------------------
 Inner Exception:
 The network path was not found

are you able to ping your DB server, sql service from erp server? Error seems to be network related. I would first try to see if you can ping/reach both servers back and forth.

Hi@RohitRattan88 and @Naveen Boga , you were both right , I cross-checked what you had pointed pointed out. Reconfigured TCP/IP in sql server and Everything worked.

Thanks alot
