Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

First thing to check is make sure the system is up and running and secondly make sure that the login credentials have not changed and are still valid.

    Please check the following steps: If SQL Server is not listening on default 1433 port OR the corresponding TCP port/pipe name is not specified in the connection string OR configure windows firewall accordingly based on what protocol you have chosen.
