I just deployed a fresh installation of SQL Server 2012 on a Windows Server 2012 Datacenter R2 environment. The installation completed with 0 warnings and 0 failures.
During the installation I specified Integrated Windows Authentication so it did not prompt me for a local SA password. I added the domain security group that should be granted administrative rights as well.
Immediately after the installer completed, I launched SMSS and am greeted by this error when attempting to connect.
After clicking okay and then pressing "Connect" a second time I get this dialog.
The TechNet article relating to this issue says to ensure that Named Pipes is behind TCP/IP in the protocol order, which it is.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE I tried switching to SQL Authentication mode by launching in Single User Mode, enabling the 'sa' account and setting the password but the errors remain the same.
