Local Sql Server connection error.

Post by praveen.joshi » Fri Oct 28, 2016 10:08 am


I am using local sql server db. In between execution I am getting error stating:

Failed to get rows from data source: Failed to load SQL data. 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) The network path was not found

Immediate help needed.

Please do let us know which version of Ranorex Ranorex you currently use.

It seems like the issue is not related to Ranorex directly. I would suggest having a look at the following stackoverflow discussion: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1806 ... ance-speci

By the way, a similar issue was reported in the forum today: http://www.ranorex.com/forum/sql-error-t10162.html
