How to setup MS SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server Express

With Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or MSDE this was very easy – once you have installed it – it is accessible from the network. But due to improved security this does not work anymore. Now you have to fine-tune SQL Server. There is a Getting Started with the Database Engine tutorial as MSDN site, which can help you. And do not forget that we have a simple AttachDB Utility, which help you to perform simple administration tasks, like Attach/Detach and Backup/Restore in a few clicks!

Thanks for this information. It clarifies my confusion as to why MSDE 2000 db cannot be networked anymore. Years back it was okay but no longer. I tried and tried but it fails.

In fact a customer of mine uses MsSQL 2005 and the networking of db also fails.

I don't understand why it is so difficult for MS to create a more foolproof system. Terrible when you read all the questions on this subject on the Internet.
