Unable to connect to SQL Server database.
 
Hello

I am new to ASP and I am using ASP.Net Visual Web Developer Express Edition.

I have been following 'How To' videos online and I am currently trying to
add Login forms.

When I first go to add a Role, by clicking on the ASP.Net Configuration
button, then select Security like it shows me in the video, it waits for a
long time then comes up with:

There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an
invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can
also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the
button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data
store.

The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Unable to connect
to SQL Server database.

Can anyone shed some light on to why this is happening as I cannot find
anything about it anywhere.

Many thanks

James

There was no way for you to know it (except maybe by browsing through some
of the previous questions in this newsgroup before posting yours - always a
recommended practice) , but this is a classic asp newsgroup. ASP.Net bears
very little resemblance to classic ASP so, while you may be lucky enough to
find a dotnet-knowledgeable person here who can answer your question, you
can eliminate the luck factor by posting your question to a group where
those dotnet-knowledgeable people hang out. I suggest
microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.aspnet.
