I created a database named testbase in sqlcmd in SERVER\MSSQLSERVER. However, I cannot access SERVER\MSSQLSERVER.

I also could not find testbase inside the server connection using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.

Appreciate any help / tips / hints.

Did you use the same user for both sqlcmd and ssms? – Edward Dortland Aug 28 '12 at 9:41
seeing your other question, are you sure you actually created the DB and didn't forget to end with a GO in SQLCMD? – Edward Dortland Aug 28 '12 at 9:54
I notice that actual I went into the wrong connection as explained in my answer. – Jack Aug 29 '12 at 1:38

Actually, I went to the wrong connection. It should be SERVER\MSQLSERVER rather than SERVER\MSSQLSERVER.
