DB not connected

  Asked By: Keaton    Date: Feb 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 709

I'm New to sharepoint, however, users are receiving "Cannot connect to the configuration database" when trying to access their sharepoint site. We're using SQL2000 on an external server. I've "pinged" both servers (sharepoint application and SQL2000 DB) and they're up! What additional steps should I take to solve this issue?

Check to be sure that the account that you are using to connect  to SQL Server is a Local Admin on SQL Server.
