    Cannot find local SQL server for DPA evaluation

    dkeyser

      I'm currently trying to evaluate the DPA product but I'm having trouble getting it to recognize a local SQL Server 2008 R2 Express instance as it's DB. I keep getting the error message "Information for the specified SQL server instance could not be retrieved." I've turned on the network protocols TCP and Named.Pipes as well as the agent just to be sure and have restarted the SQL server service for this to take effect. Also I've disabled the firewall for now.

       

      What would be causing these issues?
