in web.config using a SessionState element like so :

<system.web>
<sessionState cookiesless="UseUri"
       mode="SQLServer"
       sqlConnectionString="Data Source=localhost; Integrity Security=SSPI"


Now up above they leave out the Initial Catalog in the sqlConnectionString. So what database is being used for the sqlConnectionString?

If you don't specify the database name it will use the default database configured for the user who is connecting.
