  • Have a look at the .net connection string, it should specify the database/initial catalog. Otherwise use activity monitor or sp_who2 from SQL Server Management Studio to find the connection using the hostname or application name and see what database is being accessed.

  • Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;User ID=myUsername;Password=myPassword;Trusted_Connection=False;

    Or if you already connected run select db_name().....

            <add name="TestConnectionString" connectionString="Database=Temp ;Server=TESTSERVER\SQL2008;Integrated Security = SSPI"/>
