How do I change application database from ASPNETDB.mdf to my own

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am using Visual Studio 2008 Express.

I did this simple test:

I created a new Web project with a simple page that has a Log In. There were no databases in App_Data.

I used the configuration tool to create a Role and User.

I refreshed the project folder and behold AspNetDB.mdf has appeared in the App_Data folder.

I have checked the Web.Config file and there is NO Connection string to this database.

So how do I move the Roles/Users application data storage away from AspNetDB.mdf to my own database ??!!

Upsize Your Database: Convert Your Microsoft Access Application to Take Advantage of SQL Server 7.0


What if you need to convert an existing Microsoft Access 97 database application into a true client-server application that is based on a SQL Server back end? If you know a little about Visual Basic and SQL Server, it's easy to make your app take advantage of the power and scalability provided by SQL Server 7.0. Using some concrete code examples, this article takes you step by step through converting the native Jet queries in your Access application into stored procedures and pass-through queries that SQL Server can use. You'll also learn how to pass on parameters when your client-server app calls these SQL Server stored procedures and queries.

An example of packaging web application containing database upgrade SQL file

A few months ago, we have a blog talking about extending the web publishing pipeline to package database project deployed SQL file.  In this blog, I'll show step by step example of packaging web application with SQL Server database upgrade SQL file using Visual Studio 2010.  This way, we can generate a web package with incremental SQL script to certain database version.  The scenario may help distributions of a web upgrade package which needs to be installed on many different locations, each with their own SQL server database.   1. Create a Web Application Project 2. Add a new "SQL Server 2008 Database Project" to the solution 3. Prepare a development database, such as my test1 database as the following: 4.

Creating an database search application in VS C#

Hello everyone, I wish to create a C# application that will have a form and a text box where I can enter a text, and then ask the application to search if this text exists in a database. If it exists, I want all the information associated with this text to be displayed in a datagrid view or list box. I am able to create a database in SQL Server and I can connect to my database from VS 2005 C#. If this is possible, how do I go about it? Many thanks in advance.

Change database fields automatically according to date

Hi, I'm currently developing a software application for my client. Part of the project is to keep track of his stock's shipping status. The client must insert the stock's pick-up date, expected time of departure (ETD) and expected time of arrival (ETA). The stocks will be called out using Grid View and the status, being one of the keys of the database, will be shown. Before the current date reaches pick-up date, the status must show "in warehouse", and after the current date reaches pick-up date and is before ETD, status must show that its "on the way to the port", and after ETD and before ETA, "in freight", and finally after ETA, "arrived". What datatype should I use for the database and where should I program it so that it changes automatically accordingly ?

Looking for Clarification - Using a SQL Database MDF in an ASP.Net Application

I am looking to understand how to use Database files with ASP.Net web application projects. Very similar questions were posted, but I couldn't find quite the clarification I am looking for, so here's another post. I've been programming with ASP.Net for a while, but have always been in an environment where I had a full SQL server setup, and the databases were not file format. For the purposes of this project I am trying to keep it in .MDF format so that I can pass it on easily to my customer and let them do what they wish with it. The project is in Visual Studio 2010, a simple ASP.Net 4.0 MVC2 application that is to use EF 4.0 for persistence. Background Issue First thing I did was add a database to App_Data folder. It shows up on Server Explorer and I can manually add tables via Visual Studio - this should mean that the connection string and permissions and such fine I would think. So, next step. I created an Entity Diagram, built everything "model first" and used the Model to generate the database schema. Using the connection string in web.config, the generated SQL code runs, and says at the bottom of VS, "Disconnected". I go to the Server Explorer, and sure enough there's a red X next to the DB file. I expand the MDF, the little black arrow comes back, showing me I am connected. I try to run it again... and it does the same... "Disconnected"

problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Questions on Multi-Tenant Data Architecture for SQL Server Database and ASP.NET application

My company wants me to make the same asp.net application and sql server database be sharable amongst different clients. Clients will use the database for their own business use, will have their own data, we will have our own data. How can I share the same SQL Server database amongst different clients having same ASP.NET application (but somehow be able to differentiate which client user is logging in) ? Do I need to use ApplicationID and how will I detect at login which one to use ? I know I will need to add another field in all tables to differentiate client's data from ours.

Login to Database from Application

Hello, On my SQL Server I have the Security and Logins section.  I usually do the following to access the database from my application: 1 - Create a database on dbo scheme; 2 - Create a Login; 3 - Create a Database Role in the Database and grant the following permissions:      select, insert, update, delete, execute on schema::dbo 4 - Create a Database User and associate it to the Database role and to the Login  Then on my MVC application I use a Connection String with the login to access the database. Can I access the database without the login? Should I make this in some other way? Thank You, Miguel
