Today morning, I read a post on Pinal’s blog. I tried to reproduce the issue, but was unable to do so. Instead, I ran into a different error:

You can see from the screen shot that I was able to connect to the Instance, despite the error message. Also, I can access the data without any issues.
I was a bit curious and also tried this on SSMS 2005. And guess what, the same error appears there:

However, the Object Explorer tree does not expand.
