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: TCP Provider, error: 0 - No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 10061)

May be the server was shutdown by somebody. Why don't you go to the machine and check if its running or not..

1 solution

Looks like the server is not started.

Ok. But it sounded like you were not sure about it. ;)

I will upvote any other answer of yours by a 5 to compensate. Happy?

The basic reason behind posting it as a comment was that , it was not a solution but a suggestion/check. I was previously downvoted in similar instances.. :)

It's ok. I can understand. I had some links for my support hence it was answered. :)
