MSDE, ASP.NET, Visual Studio .NET, and connectionstrings

P: n/a
I have Visual Studio .NET and SQL Server Desktop Engine on my computer. I
have created an empty database using Visual Studio .NET's Server Explorer.
However, I am having trouble connecting to the database using ASP.NET. I
think the problem is somewhere in my connection string, but because I do not
know much about connection strings, I am not sure what it should look like.
Can someone please help me determine what my connection string should look
like? I am using the version of IIS that comes with XP Pro. Thanks.

1. Create at least one empty table in that database,
using the Server Explorer.

2. Use the Server Explorer's "Add Connection" wizard
( right-click "Data Connections" ) to create a connection.

3. The connection string will be created for you.

4. Right-click the created connection and select Properties.

5. Copy the connection string from the "Properties" box.

I have tried that, but the connectionstring that is created has plenty of
stuff in it that gives me errors. For example:

It looks like you selected the wrong provider when creating the connection.

You should select the ".NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Server"
for a provider.

Try it using that provider. You should get a correct string if you do.

If you still have problems, try a simpler connection string :

"Server=NJS;Integrated Security=True;Database=papresenters"

That assumes that your MSDE's instance name is "NJS"
and that your database name is "papresenters".

Hello Nathan,

Try the following connection string

"Driver={SQL Server};Server=127.0.0.1;Database=<database>;Uid=s a;Pwd=;"enter
the name of the database, the user and the password in the appropriate
places.This info will most likely go in your web.config. The following is a
great site forconnection strings http://www.connectionstrings.com/-- IIS

so, what would this password be (my windows password?)? Thanks again.

I think I tried it under .NET Beta 2, instead of .NET 1.1.
Nevertheless, try the simpler connection string I suggested.

Per
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...2000webapp.asp
a slightly more optimized connection string is :

"Server=localhost;Database=Pics2Share;Trusted_Conn ection=True;
Connection Timeout=60;Pooling=True;Min Pool Size=1;Max Pool Size=5"

But the simpler connection string I suggested
should give you basic connectivity :

"Server=NJS;Integrated Security=True;Database=papresenters"

The optimized connection string for your case would be :

"Server=NJS;Database=papresenters;Trusted_Connecti on=True;
Connection Timeout=60;Pooling=True;Min Pool Size=1;Max Pool Size=5"

You could also use
"Server=(local);Database=papresenters;Trusted_Conn ection=True;
Connection Timeout=60;Pooling=True;Min Pool Size=1;Max Pool Size=5"

Using Trusted_Connection should prevent the error you're getting:
Login failed for user 'NJS\ASPNET'.

It looks like you selected the wrong provider when creating the
connection.

You should select the ".NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Server"
for a provider.

Try it using that provider. You should get a correct string if you do.

If you still have problems, try a simpler connection string :

"Server=NJS;Integrated Security=True;Database=papresenters"

That assumes that your MSDE's instance name is "NJS"
and that your database name is "papresenters".

1. Create at least one empty table in that database,
using the Server Explorer.

2. Use the Server Explorer's "Add Connection" wizard
( right-click "Data Connections" ) to create a connection.

3. The connection string will be created for you.

4. Right-click the created connection and select Properties.

5. Copy the connection string from the "Properties" box.

Nevertheless, try the simpler connection string I suggested.

Per
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...2000webapp.asp
a slightly more optimized connection string is :

"Server=localhost;Database=Pics2Share;Trusted_Conn ection=True;
Connection Timeout=60;Pooling=True;Min Pool Size=1;Max Pool Size=5"

But the simpler connection string I suggested
should give you basic connectivity :

"Server=NJS;Integrated Security=True;Database=papresenters"

The optimized connection string for your case would be :

"Server=NJS;Database=papresenters;Trusted_Connecti on=True;
Connection Timeout=60;Pooling=True;Min Pool Size=1;Max Pool Size=5"

You could also use
"Server=(local);Database=papresenters;Trusted_Conn ection=True;
Connection Timeout=60;Pooling=True;Min Pool Size=1;Max Pool Size=5"

Using Trusted_Connection should prevent the error you're getting:
Login failed for user 'NJS\ASPNET'.

Nathan,

Can you create something as this

\\\
Dim conn As New SqlClient.SqlConnection("Server=MyServerName;" & _
"DataBase=MyDataBase; Integrated Security=SSPI")
Dim cmdTesting as new SqlClient.SQLCommand(txtSQLStatemement.Text,Conn)
Try
conn.open
try
cmdTesting.ExecuteNonQuery()
Catch ex as exception
response.redirect("ex.Tostring")
End Try
Catch ex as exception
response.Redirect("ex.Tostring")
Finally
conn.close
End Try
///

The reason of the error should now be showed on the page.

I hope this helps,

Cor

This is the same error and part of the code that I have been before (line 41
is the conn.Open() line). I am guessing, based on everything that has
happened so far, that the problem is not in my code, but somewhere in the
setup of MSDE (because ASP.NET obviously isn't detecting it). When I start
MSDE using "SQL Server Service Manager" (a tiny utility that does nothing
other than make it easier to start/pause/stop the service), the service that
I select is "SQL Server". There are also 2 other services that can be
started/stopped using this utility which are "SQL Server Agent" and
"Distributed Transaction Coordinator". Is it possible I need to do something
with one of these also?

Nathan,

Can you create something as this

\\\
Dim conn As New SqlClient.SqlConnection("Server=MyServerName;" & _
"DataBase=MyDataBase; Integrated Security=SSPI")
Dim cmdTesting as new SqlClient.SQLCommand(txtSQLStatemement.Text,Conn)
Try
conn.open
try
cmdTesting.ExecuteNonQuery()
Catch ex as exception
response.redirect("ex.Tostring")
End Try
Catch ex as exception
response.Redirect("ex.Tostring")
Finally
conn.close
End Try
///

The reason of the error should now be showed on the page.

I hope this helps,

Did you try :

"Server=NJS;Trusted_Connection=True;Database=papre senters"

?

On a box where both the web server and MSDE are running, that should connect.
Is there anything else you're doing that you haven't told us ?

Did you read
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...2000webapp.asp

?

There's code samples there which I *know* work.

I think I tried it under .NET Beta 2, instead of .NET 1.1.
Nevertheless, try the simpler connection string I suggested.

Per
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...2000webapp.asp
a slightly more optimized connection string is :

"Server=localhost;Database=Pics2Share;Trusted_Conn ection=True;
Connection Timeout=60;Pooling=True;Min Pool Size=1;Max Pool Size=5"

But the simpler connection string I suggested
should give you basic connectivity :

"Server=NJS;Trusted_Connection=True;Database=papre senters"

The optimized connection string for your case would be :

"Server=NJS;Database=papresenters;Trusted_Connecti on=True;
Connection Timeout=60;Pooling=True;Min Pool Size=1;Max Pool Size=5"

You could also use
"Server=(local);Database=papresenters;Trusted_Conn ection=True;
Connection Timeout=60;Pooling=True;Min Pool Size=1;Max Pool Size=5"

Using Trusted_Connection should prevent the error you're getting:
Login failed for user 'NJS\ASPNET'.

Nathan, try this :

Dim conn As New
SqlClient.SqlConnection("Server=NJS;Trusted_Connec tion=True;Database=papresenters")

and leave the rest of the code as it is now.

re:

"SQL Server Agent" and "Distributed Transaction Coordinator". Is it possible I need to

No. You don't need to use those.

re:
Login failed for user 'NJS\ASPNET'.

Download the SQL Web Administrator
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

With it, you can manage logins for MSDE databases.

Add an ad-hoc username to your PAPresenters database,
give it read/write permissions, and include that user in a new
connection string that specifies that user.

Example :

"Data Source=NJS;Initial Catalog=PAPresenters;User Id=YourUser;Password=thePassword;"

You could also add the user NJS\ASPNET to your PAPresenters database,
with the SQL Web Administrator, and use the original connection string supplied:

"Server=NJS;Trusted_Connection=True;Database=papre senters"

I don't know of anything I could have done that I haven't told you that would be related
in any way. If there were any more details I could give you (and there probably are, but
I'm not sure how to get them or even what they would be) I would, but right now I'm
pretty much pulling my hair out. I'm willing to try anything. Thank you for anything you
can find.

Did you try :

"Server=NJS;Trusted_Connection=True;Database=papre senters"

?

On a box where both the web server and MSDE are running, that should connect.
Is there anything else you're doing that you haven't told us ?

Did you read
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...2000webapp.asp

?

There's code samples there which I *know* work.

Did you try the connection strings I suggested,
or are you still using the other connection strings ?
