I am using Windows 2000. I am learning JSP/Servlet with JDBC. For which I am in need of one RDBMS. I installed Oracle 8i, but due to some error, it's not installing. Then I had tried Microsoft SQL Server. It's successfully installed, but while I started the Query Analyzer, It's asking for SQL Server. But I didn't find any server. How to connect to SQL server. PLease help to resolve my problem.
Doesn't look like it did. It looks like the client has installed not the server. The system requirements for SQL server:
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Advanced Server; Windows 2000 Professional Edition ; Windows 2000 Server; Windows Server 2003, Datacenter x64 Edition; Windows Server 2003, Enterprise x64 Edition; Windows Server 2003, Standard x64 Edition; Windows Small Business Server 2003 ; Windows XP Home Edition ; Windows XP Media Center Edition; Windows XP Professional Edition
Are you sure you have a valid version of Windows 2000?
As paul suggested, if windows 2000 professional can suuport Microsoft SQL Server, I think I missed some where. I am installed Microsoft SQL Server successfully. It asking for the SQL Server for connection. I tried with local host (127.0.0.1 or localhost), but failed. Then I thought if it's possible to use the ip of my machine. I tried to find out the ip in my machine. But I am not getting.
