Hello, I am failing to connect to sql 2000 standard edition server. I tried to ping the same server but noticed requested timed out however the other users from various other locations are able to ping the same server. Not sure why I am not able to ping the same server from my end. I do not have any latency issue at my end. Also is there any command to check if Agent is up on this server from command prompt from my client machine? Do I need to think about DAC? How can I do that? rgds,
If your server is not ping-able from your machine but is from other machines, I would think you are having network problems at your end. Speak with your network admins and get them to take a look. Maybe there is some other problem (infrastructure) problem preventing you from reaching the server.
