Cannot open database (IIS)

Hi
I have a asp.net website which runs fine when I click play in visual studio.
I have just added it to IIS in order to access it from another machine on the network.

However I get this error when I go to
http://localhost/e-services/

Any ideas?

Thanks
H

you might need to add login details to your SQL DB, i.e.

sqlconn = new SqlConnection("server = localhost; database = E-Services; uid=sa;pwd=password; integrated security=true");

In SQL SERVER I added
'mymachine\ASPNET'
under
Security
Users

Now the error is

Solution #1:

if you know the password of sa (sql login) then i recommend to use that, if not go:
Server Enterprise Manager --> Security Tab --> Right Click on sa (Server Administrator)---> select properties --> type a new password


sqlconn = new SqlConnection("server = localhost; database = E-Services; uid=sa;pwd=newPassword; integrated security=true");



Solution #2:


Server Enterprise Manager --> Database --> E-Services --> Users --> Right Click --> new Database user --> Select Login Dropdownlist --> select <new> --> type name --> Select SQL server authentication --> type password --> on database select E-Services --> press OK --> you will return to the initial screen --> select all appropriate database membership role


use the new details in your connectionstring:

sqlconn = new SqlConnection("server = localhost; database = E-Services; uid=newDBuser;pwd=newPassword; integrated security=true");

Hope that helps
