Configuring SQL Express -- getting login failed exception

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have a machine with Windows XP Pro w/SP 2, IIS, SQL Server Express and Visual Studio 2005 installed.  When I attempt to open a database from an ASPX page, I'm getting an exception with the message: "Cannot open database "Tasks" requested by the login. The login failed.Login failed for user 'MYDEV\ASPNET'." I've searched the web and found a number of pages that talk about the "Login failed for MACHINE\ASPNET" issue, but I didn't find any with a solution.  For your information (in case it makes any difference), the computer is connected to a domain.  And the authentication methods for the virtual directory (in IIS) is configured for "Anonymous access" and "Integrated Windows authentication." Does anyone know how to configure SQL Server Express (or is it IIS?) so the web page can access the database? RichardR

Visual Web Developer 2010 Express "Copy Web Site" using different login


I created a site and am trying to grant another pesron access to upload changes to it without giving them my super-user login.

I made a login for her but I can't test whether it works or not because no matter how much I "disconnect" in the Copy Web Site page of VWD 2010, reconnecting to the same site always logs in as my superuser account without prompting me for a login again.

How do I test is the account it set up correctly before having her try to upload to it?    I want to force the login to remote site dialog to pop up again to test her account.

Any ideas?

Login to SQL, using Windows 7, SQL Server Error 18452, "Login failed. The login is from an untrusted

I have a File/Sharing Server which is Server 2008 SP2 and SQL Server 2008 is installed on it. My system which is on the same workgroup, was running Windows 2003 Server, which I have saved Server 2008 login credential on it and used that credential to login to SQL Server on Server 2008 system in Windows Authentication mode using SQL management studio. Recently I installed Windows 7 on that system, and I have also saved that Server 2008 credential in Windows 7 Credential Manager. The problem is here when I want to login in Windows Authentication mode using SQL management studio like past, and I will get below Error: Cannot connect to [SERVER] Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication. (.Net SqlClient Data Provider) Error Number: 18452 Severity: 14 State: 1 Line Number: 65536 I tried that registry solution (DisableLoopbackCheck=0x01 this thread), but no luck with that. I have checked the outgoing packets when I click on connect, and I found out that SQL management studio tried to send my local windows credential instead of Server 2008 saved credential. I don't want to login in SQL Mode, and also I don't want to convert my server to Domain controller. Is there any other solution with this issue? Regards

Login Failed for User "XXX" when login from a ETL machine for Sql Server 2005 SP2

Hi Guys, I have a straange issue with Login Failed errors coming intermittently probabaly twice in a week: I have a  production Database on Server A and we have Two ETL servers on Server B and Server C. Sometimes when the ETL's (SSIS) run from SERVER B I do get an error stating login failed for user "XXX" this user is a sql server user. And when I run the same package from Server C it does not give any error and runs smoothly. Both the packages uses the same configuration file to connect to the same database with the same user credentials. Also this error is not a frequent error but comes along once or twice in a weeK. Can anyone shed some light on this and let me know the root cause. Both servers have the same sql client version as well. All servers mentioned above are 64 bit windows 2003 servers. Raju

SQL Server Express 2008 Setup fails. Support Rule "Restart Computer" Failed

Hi, I have been trying to install SQL Server Express for most of the day now without any luck.  Whatever I do setup fails at the stage of Setup Support Rules, Rule "Restart Computer" - Failed.  Needles to say I have restarted (several times!) and I have tried downloading  and installing the "Advanced", "Tools" and "Basic" versions, all give the same error.  Trying a repair does the same.  I have been searching the net for an answer without success, any help would be MUCH appreciated. Further info: I am trying to install a stand-alone installation on to a single PC running under XP SP 3 with .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.  The PC did have some earler versions of SQL server installed but I (?hopefully?) removed all of these through Control Panel.  Before trying the first SQL install I installed Windows installer 4.5 and PowerShell 1.0 as per the Microsoft Instructions. Running SQL Server Configuration Manager results in an error (MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap in might not have been installed correctly).  A directory structure for SQL server exists in "Program Files".  Services MSC shows SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) as Automatic Statup (not running).  Trying to start this manually gives error 14001: "application configuration incorrect - re-install to fix" .......... Which is precisely what I'm trying to do.........:(

Exception when login with sa in Object Explorer within MSSM Studio

Has anyone got an idea what might have caused the following. I have been able to login using SQL Server Authentication using the sa account with no problems within the object explorer. Not sure why I get an error (see below) when I try and login today. I can use the sa account via VS2010 IDE to connect to SQL Server, I can use sa account going via Database Engine Query within MSSM Studio, which uses the same SQL Server Authentication dialog. But when trying to connect via Object Explorer I get the following error.

I have SQL'08r2x64 freshly installed on a WS'03r2x64sp2 box and WS is also a DC (sorry).  Previously, there was a SQL'05sp3 installation on this box and it worked splendito.  I used the SQL'05 for some minor devel and to host a Backup Exec 11D db/installation; it all was splendito.   Then, i removed SQL'05&BE11D to prepare for an upgrade of this arrangement.  Next, i installed said SQL'08 to be the foundation for a planned Backup Exec 12.5 install.  To date, I can't get to a clean install of SQL'08 and thus have not progressed to installing BE12.5.  I now have this painfully annoying situation (as i've been beating on it for 2 days) where a series of errors occur during boot: 1st: srmSvc; Event ID 12317; File Server Resource Manager failed to enumerate share paths or DFS paths.  Mappings from local file paths to share and DFS paths may be incomplete or temporarily unavailable.  FSRM will retry the operation at a later time. 2nd & 3rd (occurs twice): MsSQL$buExpressSQL; Event ID 18456; Login failed for user 'BOWMAN\ExecSQL'.
