We do not run active directory, we are a small company less than 20
computers, looking for a way to get this working without issue, we really do
not want to switch to active directory!! lol After looking at SQL config I
am showing static of 1433 on all adaptors, Dynamic is disabled. All
computers are on same workgroup.
