I am using trusted connections and I have configured IIS 7 to use connect as a specific active directory user.  However, when it connects it doesn't use the user I set up for it (see attached image).  It connects with the machine name!  The error I get is:

 System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Login failed for user 'AD\MYComputer$'.

In the error 'AD\MyComputer' is the name of my development laptop. Why isn't it connecting as the user I specified?  How do I fix it?
   connect as iis
