While connecting to one of the SQL Server instances using the SSMS client today, I received SQL Server error 233: no process on the other end of the pipe. SQL Error 233 stated that there is no process on the other end of the pipe, and its details are as follows:
A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process. (provider: Shared Memory Provider, error: 0 – No process is on the other end of the pipe) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 233)
You can see a screenshot of this error that I received while attempting to connect to a database.
