Hi Experts,

I have changed my one of my server from windows 2000 to 2003 its running SQL 2000, All the link servers and the security accounts are some of my ASP pages are coming with the following error,

(Login failed for user 'sa'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.)

How can I check that where I'm going wrong, I can send you the code I'm using in the page and the other settings of my server, any help to trace out this problem will be much appreciated.

Many Thanks,

If u havent done this already,
check connection string in the configs.
Have u enabled Windows and Sql server authentication for  the DB?

The SQL is on windows and SQL authentication since I have installed the server, I was looking on Google and Microsoft acticles about this problem. All of them say the same thing like enabled Windows and Sql server authentication in security tab of the server which is already done.

What account are you using to connect  from the asp page to sql server is it SQL auth or windows auth. the connectio string should be in the asp page. you need to check in sql enterprise manager that the windows account is created on SQL server

security - logins -

the error you are getting is a windows auth error , happen when you dont have a windows account login in SQL server.

This is the connection string I'm using in ASP code,
string str="User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=SDXArchiver;Data Source=server1";

I have added an account in SQL which is DOMAIN\ADMIN and given in full control on all the data bases.
How can I configure my ASP file to use the domain admin account in order to get the information from server1.

Cheers!

For using windows authentication conn. string has to be like
connectionString="Initial Catalog=MyDb;Data Source=MyServer;Integrated Security=SSPI;"

Also you will have to configure IIS to run the application with DOMAIN\ADMIN account
It is a better idea to use a specific account for this and not an ADMIN account.

btw are your application and DB on different machines?
