NHibernate: "cannot open connection"

On the line of code below which says FAILS HERE I get an exception.

"cannot open connection"

I assume I have a configuration problem with the hibernate.cfg.xml file but can not find the problem since the exception is being thrown by NHibernate. Any idea where to look?

Maybe it was something wrong in your hql or .hbm config.

Try change to simple query to test:

IQuery query = session.CreateQuery("from DeviceIDRecord");
IList<DeviceIDRecord> evtList = query.List<DeviceIDRecord>();

Is there any result?

No, same error.  It's a connection problem.

What database are you using? And let me see your connection string as well.
newbiewebSr. Software EngineerAuthor Commented:
I am using SQL Express 2005.

    <property name="connection.connection_string">Server=localhost\SQLEXPRESS;initial catalog=PPDB01;User Id=sa;Password=sqlserversapassword;</property>


Is there a way to verify this connection string is actually being use by NHibernate?
