connection local SQL Server 2008 db

Hi there,

I guess someone could help me with this 'local SQL Server connection experience'...

I´ve SUCCESSFULLY created a local SQL server database connection through Dreamweaver (tested and worked), and I´ve also created SUCCESSFULLY a recordset that (when tested) gives me some fields of a table that is inside this local SQL server database.

The problem is, when the (ASP) page is populated with the recordset and I try to run the page through my local server, I get the error white page with the following message:

Error Type:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server (0x80040E4D)
Login failed for user '[nameOfmyMachine]\IUSR_[specificname]-14A780B05'.
/folderName/TestingSQL_local.asp, line 9

where line 9 is the

rsTesting_cmd.ActiveConnection = MM_connSQL_local_STRING   ...

I know that this connection string is working properly (when testing the connection through Dreamweaver), therefore I guess I have some problem with the local database permission... I´m 100% ignorant on these matters...

Please help!

Hi, venk_r!

Thanks for the reply and the link. From it, I could understand that it was an Authorization IIS issue, then I went into the "directory security" tab (in my folder´s IIS properties) and solved the problem.

Thanks a lot,
