Login Failure using SQLOLEDB

Posted on 2001-07-11
Last Modified: 2008-03-03
I try to connect to an SQL server (7.0) database from an IIS application that I am developing using VBSCRIPT (ASP).  The database server and the web server reside on different machines.  I use the following code:

dim CONN
set CONN = server.CreateObject("adodb.connection")CONN.ConnectionString = "provider=SQLOLEDB;server=MYSRV;uid=MYUSR;pwd=MYPWD;database=MYDB"

I get the following error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80004005'
Login failed for user 'MYUSR'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.

What is a trusted SQL Server connection?  How do I create one?

The problem is that the IIS server is using named pipes to try and connect to the database.  It should be using TCP/IP.

If you have the SQL Client on the IIS server, on the IIS server go to the Client Network Utility in the SQL Server 7.0 start menu.  Either enable the protocal TCP/IP and put it at the top of the list or create an alias that uses TCP/IP

Hope this helps

Or the userID and password is invalid.
Are you sure you have used the valid userID and password?
Regarding userID, it can be either from SQL Server userID alone or NT login(if you are using Mixed Security mode).

try this:

"provider=SQLOLEDB;server=MYSRV;user id=MYUSR;password=MYPWD;database=MYDB;"

The question was answered in the VB area.  I had posted in three areas namely VB, ASP and MS SQL.  Thanks to all you experts that attempted to answer it.

The answer it that the SQL server security must be set to mixed security.
