In Manage parameters, for Database, I M using my DB name something like SKR-SCTSOLAR\SOLARWINDS

, and server instance as IP address


I m getting below error

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
