SQL Server Knowledge Point
You can install and run multiple instances of SQL Server on a single computer.
Instances are further divided into <default instance> and <named instance>, and there is at most one <default instance> on a computer, <the default instance> has no specific name.
If you want to access SQL Server <default instance>, use <computer name, localhost, or IP address>.
If you want to access SQL Server <named instance>, use the <computer name, localhost, or IP address>\\<instance name>.
Example (1) SQL Server is installed locally as the default instance, and the Data Source is as follows:
localhost
Example (2) SQL Server Expres is installed locally, the instance name is <SQLEXPRESS>, and the Data Source is as follows:
localhost\\SQLEXPRESS
Example (3) The SQL Server server IP address is "10.1.2.3", the instance name is <MSSQL>, and the Data Source is as follows:
10.1.2.3\\MSSQL
