"SQL Server does not exist or access denied."
When I open the enterprise manager, no items are displayed. Also, the service manager is running, so I can't even run a database backup. I usually end up in reinstalling the SQL Server 2000. How should I approach this problem?
When you open Enterprise Manager and are unable to see the servers, this is probably because you have not registered any SQL Servers on the server or workstation that you are using. I would try the registration process to access the SQL Server.
