SQL Server on Win7, IIS on Server 2008 R2 - Credentials not auth RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have SQL server installed in a Windows 7 box. I have my website which accessed the SQL server installed in Windows Server 2008 R2. The problem is the WIndows & box wont accept the credentials from the NT Server...

    Windows 7 user with admin rights called  SQLWIN7/bob  

    Logged into Server 2008 as  SVR/admin

    I did an experiment and attempted to access SQLWIN7/c$  it asked for credentials so I entered  SQLWIN7/bob and pw - access denied

    I then attempted to access  SVR/C$  from SQLWIN7 as SVR/admin - success

    So it appears SQL server cannot access the Windows 7 Machine using a Windows 7 admin account!! This is why I can get SQL server authentication working

    Any suggestions for this?

    ASP.NET Impersonation disabled

    Server=;Database=socks;User ID=SQLWIN7\bob;Password=●●●●

    Login failed for user 'SQLWIN7\bob'.

  • Server=;Database=socks;User ID=SQLWIN7\bob;Password=●●●●


    Login failed for user 'SQLWIN7\bob'.

    First, note that a Windows account cannot be specified in the connection string.  To connect using Windows authentication, omit the User ID and Password and instead specify "Integrated Security=SSPI":

    Server=;Database=socks;Integrated Security=SSPI

    Since you are running your web code with impersonate=false, you must use SQL authentication.  To connect with SQL Authentication, the User ID an Password specifies a SQL login rather than a Windows account.  You need to create the account in SQL Server and grant the needed permissions before it can be used.  The SqlClient connection string will be like:

    Data Source=;Initial Catalog=socks;User ID=bob;Password=●●●●
