Recently trying to work on some SSRS stuff with a local instance of my company Database, and I messed with number of allowed connections. Now attempting to connect to my local instance yields:
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio
Cannot show requested dialog.
Failed to connect to server DESKTOP-68S3Q92. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)
A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the pre-login handshake. (provider: Shared Memory Provider, error: 0 - No process is on the other end of the pipe.) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 233)
No process is on the other end of the pipe
Interestingly, if I restart my server from SQL Server Configuration Manager it will successfully connect, but then immediately give the same message, and prevent me from touching properties or anything else.
If anyone has some insight to the problem I would be most appreciative, I'm still pretty new at this SQL game.
