Microsoft SQL Server | Server Error 26
Updated over a week ago

Error: Connectivity test failed. Exception: 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: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)
โ€‹Steps to Remediate:
By default, leaving the 'Instance' config field in the inspector template will prompt the inspector to run the inspection against the default SQL Server instance on the host (e.g. MSSQLSERVER, SQLEXPRESS, etc.) If you wish to inspect this instance, ensure that the 'Instance' field is left empty
