Cannot connect to local server with windows authentication

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

When I try to connect to my local server using windows authentication I get the following error:

Login failed for user 'Will-PC\Will'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 18456)

 

It happens if I try to give the server name as WILL-PC, (local), localhost, or "."

I am on Windows 7, and I am using SQL Server 2005 Standard edition, the and SQL Server service is running.  I can't get into the server in any way to see what users are available.  Please help!

Hello, 

 

I have a user getting some problem with connecting to local SQL Server 2008 default instance using windows authentication with a user which has sysadmin role and is owner of each existing database:

Hey all, so here's what going on:

Situation
I have a WCF Service that I have setup as a Windows Service.  Everything works perfectly when I attempt to use the system with all of the components (i.e. server and clients) on the same machine.  However, when I try to connect my client from a different system, I get an error that is trying to tell me that the server rejected the client's credentials.

Objective
I need the client to the able to connect from a different machine.  I want to implement a SQL Role Provider kind of credentialing in the future, but for now, I just need it to work.

What I have tried
I have looked around online and read a few other posts as well some things in the MSDN KB and I have either not found the answer, or not understood it.

  • I have tried setting the <security mode="Transport"> to "None" with the hope that that would disable the accreditation entirely.  All it did was result in a different error saying that there was an error that might have been caused by an invalid message.  I have also tried a few other configurations with this element in the app.config file; to no success.
  • I have read some things about Impersonation, but I am not quite sure I understand how to implement it

Can't connect to local database file .mdf using SQL Server Authentication?

  

Using  - Visual Studio 2005 Professional, SQL Server 2005 Express, WinForms App

Problem - I am unable to connect to SQL Server local Database file (.mdf) through  SQL Server Authentication.

Description -

I am addding a SQL Database file (local) in the c# winapp solution by right-click -> add new item -> SQL database file.

It adds the file, starts a wizard to create datasets and tableAdapters. Dataset files (.xsd) are created in solution. In the Data Connection pane along ToolBox we can see Database1.mdf.

When i right click on databse1.mdf -> Modify Connection.

It shows a form with Test Connection option. The connection gets tested for Windows Auth.But for SQL Server Auth it shows following error message -

When User Instance = True

Error 1 "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server. Only an integrated sonnection can generate a user instance. The connection will be closed"

When i set User Instance = False it shows this message -

Error 2 "An Attemp to attach an auto-named database for file C:\Doc&Sett\Admin\MyDocs\VS2005\Projects\SamApp\SamApp\Database1.mdf failed. A database with the same name

How to connect to a different SQL server by using Windows Authentication?

  

Hi all

Version: SQL Server 2008 R2

When I use my SQL Server Mgt Studio -> Connect... Database Engine... then click on Authentication: Windows Authentication, my username is gray out and it grabs my current domain\username. I need to type a different Domain\Username.

How do I do that if the field is grayed out?

Thank  you

How to connect to local instance of SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Express ?

  

I just installed SQL Server 2008 Management studio Express on my Vista machine.

i tried connecting to local machine using :

.\sqlexpress, (local)\sqlexpress, or .\SQLExpress, MyPCNAME\SQLExpress

nothing is working, getting this error:

-----------------------------
Cannot connect to PC-NAME\SQLEXPRESS. A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

Can't connect to SQL 2005 Enterprise using Management Studio with Server Name (only (local) works

  
This is a test system, everything running locally & no domains. Win 2003 Ent. Server & SQL Server 2005 Enterprise. I can't log into SQL Server Management Studio using the server name & using either Windows Authentication or SQL login. If I change the name of the server in the drop-down list to "(local)", I connect just fine (both Windows & SQL security modes). Shared Memory, Named Pipes & TCP/IP enabled in both server & client. Remote connections allowed. I have IP adresses (both 127.0.0.1 & external IP) in my hosts file pointing to the server name. Does SQL require a DNS server? This wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I can't install SQL 2005 SP3 due to authentication failure since there's no way to enter (local) as the server name. SQL tools (management studio, SP install) seem to see the SQL server running but won't authenticate the user through any means other than setting server name to (local). This is driving me crazy!!!

How to impersonate a connection to SQL server under IIS app pool account if Windows Authentication i

  
I have a requirement I should connect to MS SQL server under IIS Application pool account from ASP.NET application where Windows Authentication is enabled. I cannot use user name and password in connection string. ASP.NET application should use Entity Framework 4.0 to work with data. Any ideas how to do it?    

ODBC connection to SQL Server 2005 Standard (on windows xp) with Windows authentication does NOT wor

  
I reviewed lots of postings, still could not find an answer. If I choose Windows authentication: - with TCP/IP and "Dynamically determine port" checked, I get the following error "The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection; - with Named Pipes, Server Name & Pipe Name as "VSAXAONG", I get two errors, one after the other on the same pop-up:       Connection failed  SQL State 01000  SQL Server Error 1385 [Microsoft] [ODBC SQL Server Driver] [Named Pipes] ConnectionOpen (Connect()).       Connection failed  SQL State 08001 SQL Server Error 17 [Microsoft] [ODBC SQL Server Driver] [Named Pipes] SQL Server does not exist or access denied. If I choose SQL Server authentication and fill in the password - the ODBC connection works fine. I have to say that I created two different logins on the server, one for Windows authentication, and one for SQL Server authentication - both for the same Windows user name. I would appreciate any help I can get on this.  Thank you all in advance.

local pipes vs. network pipes (to connect to SQL Server)

  
Choosing a Network Protocol (SQL Server 2008 R2) tells: "It is also important to clarify if you are talking about local pipes or network pipes. If the server application is running locally on the computer that is running an instance of SQL Server, the local Named Pipes protocol is an option. Local named pipes runs in kernel mode and is very fast" Well, it is not me who is talking in cited article, I believe so. Should it be understood that "If the server application is running locally on the computer that is running an instance of SQL Server" and configuring/choosing Named Pipes mean running "local Named Pipes"?

Cannot connect to Sql Server Local Instance

  
Hello allI just installed sql server 2005 to my pc and when i try to log in to the server instance i get an error log in failed for user xxx (error 18456). I browse to the server instance and i keep getting the same error even though i chose windows authentication option during the installation. I restarted the service for the sql server instance (which is running).The only problem i can think about is a problem with permissions but again there should not be any problem there because i logged in as administrator. Any suggestions please!!!

ASP.NET Forms Authentication connecting to SQL Server with Windows Authentication

  
Hi everyone, I am not sure if this is the correct forum - apologies in advance - I could not identify where it should go! I have an ASP.NET Web Application that uses Forms Authentication using System.Web.Security.ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider for signing on using Windows credentials.  This works nicely and is solid. The problem I have is connecting to SQL Server.  I need to be able to connect to SQL Server using Windows Authentication (trusted_connection=yes or Integrated Security=SSPI).  This is critical so I can record the user that created/last modified specific records and also to collect "Task-based" records that are relevant to the currently authenticated user. I have tried Google and a tonne of variations of web.config entries, using Win API to impersonate etc...  The only way that I could make it happen was to:- 1. Use the web.config entry:   (please entry at the bottom of the post.  For some reason it won't go into the right spot in this post!) 2. Log on specifically as the user specified in the above web.config entry.  If I log on as anyone else (ie Authenticate as anyone else), then SQL server simply gets the ASPNET service account as the Windows user. I have laboured over this for hours upon hours.  I really would appreciate some assistance. Thanks in Advance, Joe     "<identity

Enabling Windows Authentication to SQL Server using Application Pool Credentials

  
I have created a WCF Service (VS2008), an application pool account which has the access to the SQL Server(in remote machine). Configured the App Pool account to the Virtual Directory in IIS (Version 6.0). Once I browse through the SVC file, I can see the WSDL file. I have the "Windows Authentication" and the 'Anonymous authentication" Checked in the Properties for the Virtual Directory. But when I access service through Client, I get "The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Negotiate,NTLM'.". Binding that is being used is HTTPBinding. I have set the Identity Impersonate to True as well. Bottom line is - I need to use the App Pool account to connect to the SQL Server. Could some one please help me in this?  

SQL Server 2008 Windows Authentication Mode fails for Database Engine, error 18456

  
I installed SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition (10.0.1600.22.080709-1414) on a Windows Vista 32-bit development machine with Windows Authentication Mode only (no SQL Server Authentication).   Since this is a development machine, I saw no need for Mixed Mode when I did the install.  The SQL Server Management Studio allows me to login to Analysis Services, Integration Services, Reporting Services, BUT NOT the Database Engine!Windows Authentication for the Database Engine gives the following error: EventID: 18456Login failed for user MYDOMAIN\MYLOGIN'. Reason: Token-based server access validation failed with an infrastructure error. Check for previous errors. [CLIENT: <local machine>]The 'fix' I have found online is to login as SA in SQL Server Authentication mode & add MYDOMAIN\MYLOGIN as a administrator for the Database Engine.  Unfortunately, I can't since I didn't install SQL Server Authentication mode (only Windows Authentication Mode).  It appears my only recourse is to uninstall, then reinstall in Mixed mode, then to login as SA in SQL Server Authentication mode & add MYDOMAIN\MYLOGIN as a administrator for the Database Engine. Before I do so, does anyone know of a better approach?Scott D Duncan
