Today, I was trying to Start my SQL server browser using SQL server configuration manager in windows 10, but I cannot see any option to start it as it is blurred and not clickable, so cannot start SQL server browser, here is the screenshot of my pc
How can I start it? Thanks
You need to enable SQL Server Browser for your Windows
In Windows 10 : Go to Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services, and look for the SQL Server Browser. Right-click, and select Properties From the Startup Type dropdown, change from Disabled to Automatic.
In Windows Server 2012 : Go to Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Services, right-click SQL Server Browser > Properties > General tab, change Startup type to Automatic, click Apply button, then click Start button in Service Status area.
That's it, you are done.
