ASP SQL Native Connection to SQL Express Server

I am trying to connect to a SQL database on another file server, but receive an error when I run the ASP:

XDBc Test

Microsoft SQL Native Client error '80004005'

Cannot open database "pbsdata" requested by the login. The login failed.

/odbc/test_xdbc.asp, line 10

The asp page is:

<h1>XDBc Test</h1>
<%
      'On Error Resume Next

      
      Dim conn

      set conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
      conn.ConnectionString =  "Provider=SQLNCLI.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=pbsdata;Data Source=profish-app01\SQLExpress"
      conn.open




      If conn.State = 1 Then
            response.write("connected1")
         Else
            response.write("FAIL")
      End If

       If db <> 0 Then

      End If
      conn.close
      set conn=nothing
%>


I had created the connection string by creating a udl file, and then cutting and pasting the connection string from notepad. When I test the UDL file, the test connection works.

The ASP page is located on a Windows 2003 Server Service Pack 2

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You currently have it set to use integrated security, and the user that is passed through is not yours, it is the asp programs.

Just to verify this add a user and password to the end of the connection string one that you know has access rights on SQL server e.g.:
conn.ConnectionString =  "Provider=SQLNCLI.1;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=pbsdata;Data Source=profish-app01\SQLExpress;user=dan;password=dan"

If that is the case then check what user you have IIS set to run as, I believe the default is IUSR_MachineName

Although not this exact problem this article explains how to set appropriate security permissions:

As indicated, you would best advised to use SQL Server Authentication.

I never was able to make Microsoft Authentication work. SQL authentication did work.
