Cannot open database "ASPState" requested by the login

Hello Experts,
My website runs fine.  But when I try to switch to different database server and run the app, I am getting this error.  Any idea, what is going on?  Thank you in advance.


Cannot open database "ASPState" requested by the login. The login failed. Login failed for user 'Xxxxx'.

in short, these are the usual issues (on the new server):
*  the login is not defined  
* the aspstate db does not exist
* the login is not granted the permissions on the db
* the db was restored, and you need to relink the "user" in the db to the login (use ALTER USER ... LOGIN )
