SQL Gateway Error when connecting FLOW to SQL

I receive this error when attempting to create a connection to SQL from FLOW: 

Microsoft SQL: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) inner exception: Microsoft SQL: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) clientRequestId: 1d66ccb1-60cc-4e27-b4b8-99acc614d8e8
Any suggestions to establish a connection?

Re: SQL Gateway Error when connecting FLOW to SQL

Hi @Cmagee2433 ,

 

Are you able to connect to Server though Management Studio?

 

Please make sure the SQL Server is running. Go to Computer management>Services to turn on the Server if it is stopped.

 

I got the same error message with you this morning, then I found that my SQL Server was not running. After I turned it on, the connection works again.
