I thought it might be a database error. Now I think it is a web.config.
Server Error in '/Cms' Application.

Cannot open database "CMS" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Your connection string is using integrated security but you don't have impersonation in use so the account that asp.net runs as (Network Service in your case) is trying to connect to the database but doesn't have permission to. You can fix this by either:

1.) Give Network service permission to the database.
2.) Create a SQL Server login and have your connection string use that instead of integrated security/windows authentication.
3.) Enable impersonation on your website so that the asp.net service runs as a specific account or namely, the account that the user accessing the site is logged in as. This option will generally only work for you in an intranet environment.

try this

go to IIS --> your Web Site properties --> ASP.NET tab --> Change ASP.NET version to 1.1 and then change back to 2.0.
