I'm attempting to connect to a test Database on a Parallels VM on Mac using Azure Data Studio, but I'm getting the standard, generic connection error:
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): 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: TCP Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)
Steps I've taken so far to open the connection include:
I'm able to connect from the windows VM but not the Mac.
Is there a step I've missed or some extra config that I need to do on the VM itself maybe? Or maybe the connection string isn't quite right? I've also tried using the Machine Alias to connect to the instance (SQLEXPRESS) - but still no joy. Anyone know what the problem might be because it's driving me crazy and I can see that other devs have made it work, so I know it's possible. My version of Parallels is Desktop 15, I don't know if that makes a difference or not?
