I have newly installed following things on my system
- Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2014 - SQL Server 2017 - Visual Studio 2015
When I tried to open SSMS for the first time, it asked me for the "Server Name" when I surfed I came to know that I have to check the instance name in Configuration manager-->Sql Services, but I couldn't find any services running in Configuration Manager, it is showing "There are no items to show"
Secondly, I also tried giving the permissions to my SQL Server services as mentioned in article here, but couldn't solve my issue.
Also I tried to check find the SQL Server instance name using the
sqlcmd -L command, but it didn't show any servers, even though SQL Server is already installed.
What am I doing wrong?
