    Hello Dylan,

    Apologies for the late response.

    This is an odd error you are experiencing. Error 6243 in SQL Server LocalDB indicates that the server instance could not be configured or created. This error usually occurs when there are issues with the LocalDB installation or configuration. Here are a few steps we can try to resolve this issue:

    • Verify LocalDB installation: Ensure that LocalDB is installed correctly on your system. You can check the installation by running the "SqlLocalDB" command in the Command Prompt or PowerShell. If LocalDB is not installed, you can download and install it from the Microsoft website.

    • Restart LocalDB service: Sometimes, restarting the LocalDB service can resolve configuration issues. Open the Services management console (services.msc), locate the "SQL Server (LOCALDB)" service, and restart it. Alternatively, you can use the command prompt or PowerShell and execute the following command: "SqlLocalDB stop MSSQLLocalDB" followed by "SqlLocalDB start MSSQLLocalDB".

    • Verify instance name: LocalDB uses instance names to identify different instances on the same machine. Ensure that the instance name you are using is correct. By default, the instance name is "MSSQLLocalDB," but you may have a different instance name if you have multiple instances or have explicitly specified a custom name.

    • Check instance availability: LocalDB instances are created on-demand and are not always running. If you are trying to connect to a specific LocalDB instance, make sure it is currently available. You can start the instance using the "SqlLocalDB start <instanceName>" command.

    • Reinstall LocalDB: If the above steps do not resolve the issue, you can try uninstalling and reinstalling LocalDB. This ensures a clean installation and may fix any configuration problems. After reinstalling, make sure to follow the recommended configuration steps.

    If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it may be necessary to involve your system or database administrator or seek further assistance from Microsoft Support or the SQL Server community. They can provide more specific guidance based on your system configuration and the exact error message you are encountering.

    Finally, we also have a Professional Services team, who in exchange for a quote can assess your environment and try to find out what is causing this issue.

    All the best!
