Ever get a GNE? Ever wonder why SQL Discovery doesn't seem to be consistent? Ever get trapped by Window's firewall? Confused about VIA? Then, this is the blog site for you to watch.
This blog is run by the SQL Server protocols component team. This is the team responsible for the networking in SQL Server. This includes Discovery (SSRP), TDS, SOAP, transports like TCP, Named Pipes, and VIA. In this blog we hope to proactively answer many of the recurring issues that we see our customers running into. We should be able to tell you how to do some of the more subtle configurations and how to diagnose issues you're running into more efficiently (We've added TONS of diagnostics in SQL Server 2005). We'll show you how to use them.
Thanks and hopefully you'll find this useful!
The SQL Server Protocols team
