If this is so simple, why I am writing this post!

There are some common mistakes that we need to avoid and Common practices we need to follow for creating a better environment for our usage.

Even after using all the above mentioned stuff, some of us may be stuck with some issues like
- Creating SQL alias "SPSQL"...

- Testing access to SQL server/instance/alias: SPSQL

- Trying to connect to "SPSQL"... – Fail

- Script halted!

- Connection Error. Check server name, port, firewall.

So, please follow the below steps and practices to create SP 2013 machine.

Please follow the instructions mentioned in here
