I am getting the below error when I try to deploy .. Please help me ...
A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)
Are you deploying it via Visual Studio. If yes then check the SQL settings in Project properties and you have access to the SQL Server.

If you are trying to deploy from Visual Studio, make sure valid SQL paramaters are set in deployment properties of project. I don't see any possibility of this error if you deploy from BTS management studio.
