Webservice migration issue

P: n/a
Hi All,

One of my clients is having a problem with a webservice that is part of an
application. The application is constructed as follows.
1. Windows forms client(.NET 1.1) - on user PCs
2. Webservice DAL(NET 1.1) - on web server
3. SQL Server 2000 database - on db server

This setup is pretty straight forward and was working fine on Windows 2000
pro PCs and Windows 2000 servers. However, they have moved the server parts
of the system onto Windows 2003 and now get an SQL Access denied error when
running the app.

If the developers run the client application on the webserver, connecting
locally to the webservice, all is well. From the desktop, they get the error.

Apparently, this was all fine on the win2k platform and only seems to have
cropped up since migrating to windows server 2003.

We have tried the usual, change the permissions so that asp_net or IUSR_XXX
can have anon access, none of these worked.

Any suggestions please?

This problem is usrgent now and they are considering raising an MS priority
support call, however, i am convinced it is something simple we have missed

Thanks in advance,
