How do I reconfigure SQL network protocols for Business Contact Manager?

Reconfiguring the SQL network protocols for Business Contact Manager for Outlook is an advanced administrative task.

Reconfigure Microsoft SQL Server Express 2008 to allow users on remote computers to access the shared database

By default, when Business Contact Manager for Outlook installs SQL Server Express 2008, it is configured to restrict connections only to users on the local computer.

When the Business Contact Manager database is shared, Business Contact Manager for Outlook automatically activates networking support to allow users on other computers to connect to the shared database by enabling both the TCP/IP protocol and the named pipes protocol.

To manually activate networking support to allow users to connect to this database from a remote computer, complete the following procedure.

  1. Click Start, and then point to All Programs.

  2. Click Microsoft SQL Server 2008.

  3. Click Configuration Tools, and then click SQL Server Configuration Manager.

  4. In the left pane of the SQL Server Configuration Manager window, expand SQL Server Network Configuration, and then select Protocols for MSSMLBIZ.

  5. In the right pane, right-click Named Pipes, and then click Enable.

  6. In the right pane, right-click TCP/IP, and then click Enable.

  7. Close the SQL Server Configuration Manager window.

If the preceding information does not resolve the issue, search the Microsoft Support Web site for advanced help with Microsoft SQL Server.
