Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection?

I get the following error when trying to connect to my database via an asp page:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e4d'
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Login failed for user '(null)'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.

I'm using a DSN which does test successfully, with windows NT authentication.
This is my connection string: "dsn=OrbisSql; database=orbisbdgt;"

I set up a user in sql as well (I may not have done this correctly though) and have tried to use this user in the DSN - when I do that it tells me the user is also not associated with a trusted connection.

I've been searching message boards, microsoft articles - I feel like I've tried everything and it still doesn't work.  Help!

You need to specify the userid and password...

server=servername;database=dbname;uid=userLogin;pwd=password

in your DNS connection you have Trusted_Connection=yes which will try to log in as the Windows user.

try direct connection

getConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=MyServer;Initial Catalog=" & strDatabase & ";Persist Security Info=False;Integrated Security=SSPI;"

or like that

objConn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=RAJESH;Database=phone;Initial Catalog=phone;User ID=sa;Password=something;"


or try that

Set oServer = Server.CreateObject("SQLDMO.SQLServer")
oServer.Connect "<servername>" , "<username>", "<password>"

Hmm... I tried both of your suggestons, FDzjuba, still getting the same error...  
By the way, in case you were wondering, I have the Authentication method in the Server properties Security tab set to "SQL Server and Windows".

Finally - got it to work. All I had to do was restart SQL server.  I also noticed that its not working with the DSN, only with the direct connection in the string, using FDzjub - so I guess that makes you today's lucky winner! Thanks!
