I have migrated a Microsoft Access 2010 database to Microsoft SQL Server 2008.  Is the following connection string correct?

    <add name="ConnStrNSMDB" connectionString="Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=vcnsql90\i90;User ID=nsm1171;Password=[Secret Password];Initial Catalog=nsm;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

Much depends on your server set up and how you want to connect to it.

Just remove provider key:-

<add name="ConnStrNSMDB" connectionString="Data Source=vcnsql90\i90;User ID=nsm1171;Password=[Secret Password];Initial Catalog=nsm;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
