Configuration :: Deployment Error -Failed To Generate A User Instance Of SQL Server Due To A Failure In Copying Database Files
Jul 28, 2010
I have created roles and users using ASP.NET configurations for login validations, it works fine if I run my application within project but when I publish my site and try to run from my Inetpub it giving this error. I tried all shorts of solutions posted in website but nothing worked for me.
"Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in copying database files. The connection will be closed"
i have an asp.net project in vs2010 i have a db and table inside the app_data folder, i have created a deployment package and have imported the package into an iis server that is installed on my local mechine. now i get this error message while trying to preform an insertion.
Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to failure in retrieving the user's local application data path. Please make sure the user has a local user profile on the computer. The connection will be closed the connection string is:
Data Source=.SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|survey.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True
In fact, I DO NOT want to ask a question but to share one solution to this. One cause of this problem is you did not register your sql express on iis.I installed .net 3.5 sp1, then ran aspnet_iis -i, then installed sql express 2005 advanced. Yes, here came the notorious alert. So, I ran aspnet_regiis again and everything is OK.Run aspnet_regiis before you have installed sql express.
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Visual Studio 2008 Team System Using C# SQL Server 2005 Express Management Studio (Service Pack 3) By using Visual Studio 2008,I opened Server Explorer and tried to modify Database connection,i wanted to use SQL Authentication,I entered User name and Passwored after pressing OK button,i got the following... Error message Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server.Only an integerated connection can generate a user instance.The connection will be closed.
I can't believe my eyes it's so hard to do just that ! Why can't I use MS Access instead of SQL Server Express ? So since I'm stucked with SQL Server Express, how can I make it work on my dedicated IIS 7 Server on Windows 2008 ?
I have copied under the root directory of the server. The website works until I try to login then I get:
Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server
how to deploy this simple example used by Microsoft or can I ?
Update: in case it does matter I have installed SQL Server 2008 Express Advance Services Edition.
I have created on my local machine with targetframework 4 in visual studio a simple website using the default template (the one with css problem solved here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3897781/google-maps-api-in-asp-net-masterpage-why-it-stays-blank)I uploaded it to my IIS 7 server which was first configured for .NET 2 so in web.config I deleted the line
so that it can run on .NET 2.Until then that was fine.Then I edited in ISS7 my website to use .NET 4. When testing the site again, I got this error:Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to failure in retrieving the user's local application data path.I hadn't told you that I didn't install any sql server yet so this message may be normal but why didn't I get it with .NET 2 ? Could I configure something in .NET 4 so that this error is ignored like on .NET 2 ?
I'm trying to create a database within the app_data folder of an asp.net mvc project using the IDE, but i am getting a "Required Components Missing" message indicating "Connections to SQL Server files (*.mdf) requireSQL Express 2005 ....."
I am using - Windows 7 Enterprise - VS2008 Team System SP1 - SQL Server 2008 Developer Edition SP1
I have altered the database connection to use the default instance by setting to blank using
Tools -> Options -> Database Tools -> Data Connection : SQL Server Instance Name
I also note from the SQL Server Books Online that the user instance feature will be removed in the future, but for now it suits my effort in developing an application where a number of people are working on the project.
Has anyone managed to create a database in the same manner?
I've upload my web application on a localhost computer, and I got this error "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to failure in retrieving the user's local application data path.Please make sure the user has a local user profile on the computer."
I 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
I have been struggling with an issue that sounds like it should be quite common but I can't seem to get the thing working no matter how much I research it!
I am using an AJAX file uploader to upload files (up to 100MB) to the webserver and when the user clicks a button to complete navigate to the next page, I then attempt to move the files off the webserver onto a file server on Page_Load. Both servers are WinServer 2003. There just isn't enough space on the webserver to hold all the uploads once we go live with this solution so I have to get the files off the webserver.
Uploading the file and creating a new subdirectory on the webserver (to hold the file) works no problem at all. When I do the file copy to our file server locally on VS2008, again, no problem. However, when I delopy to the live server and try the same thing, the upload happens ok, but the file copy does not. I get an UnauthorizedAccessException. I don't have access to the webserver myself (but can request it if absolutely necessary) and our file server sits within the same domain (Active Directory).
I do not want to use Impersonation at a high level (web.config), so I tried it programmatically for the purposes of the copy file but it did not work. I used one of our general clerical accounts to pass in the credentials and gave full permission to this account on the file server to create/modify files.
I've got an asp.net application which I've deployed to my shared hosting provider. I've modified the connection string to point to the MySQL database stored on the shared server, and the page loads correctly.
However, when I run the page through the internet (as opposed to through VWD2008), I get an error: Unable to connect to any of the specified MySQL hosts.
I'm not sure where I've gone wrong. The MySql.Data.dll; MySql.Data.Entity.dll and MySql.Web.dll are all in the /Bin folder.
Lately it's been taking about 15-30 seconds for my site to respond after copying new files into the bin folder. I do updates throughout the day to fix bugs, add new features, etc. It used to only take a couple seconds.
I have 4 files that get copied into the bin directory regularly. 2 DLLs and 2 PDB.s I use debug mode (I prefer it for the errors since right now I'm updating frequently), but have also tried release mode and it didn't make a difference. 3 files are 1MB and the other is 400KB. I've also cleaned and re-built but still the same.
It was only taking a couple seconds for the app to restart until a day or two ago. I'm not sure what changed. This is an active site so having a long delay is a problem. I've been tempted to try an iisreset, but that'll really create a problem for users on the site.
This is with IIS6, Win 2003, and .NET 3.5.
I looked in the .NET temp folder and it's not filled with garbage.
i am new to asp.net development and create my website using asp.net 2.0 and sqlserver2005express edition how can i upload the database on remote server i m using plesk acount. and what changes are require in web.config.
I am REALLY stuck with this and need a solution in the next 24 hours .i I have uploaded my asp.net web application to the web and have the database and connection strings functioning and reading the data from the database. But when I try to write to the DB
I get the following error :
Server Error in '/' Application.
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.
Description:An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: 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)
The wierd thing about this is the connection strings work from the local machine when I run from Visual Studio and I can write to the DB there, I just cannot write to the DB from the URL.
I am pretty new to asp.net but I am sure it has to be something to do with the web.config.
I have a web service that I have successfully published locally several times through VS2008. When I attempt to publish this service through VS2010, a dialog window is displayed where you must enter a 'Service URL' and 'Site/Application.' The service URL is not a problem, but what do I enter as a 'Site/Application?'
My entries are as follows:
Service URL: http://localhost/gfIDSProxyAccess/Service1.asmx Site/Application: localhost/gfIDSProxyAccess
I also tried localhost, gfIDSProxyAccess, www.gfcpa.com, gfcpa.com, www.gfcpa.com/index.html and localhost/gfIDSProxyAccess/Service1.asmx, with and with and without the http://.
if my website when session of user expire i get the following error.
Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster.
Microsoft sql server error 18456 in sql server 2008 r2login failed for user sasql server was working properlyi just restarted the system and then i started getting the above errorhow do i resolve iti am able to login with windows authentication but not sql authentication....
I wrote a web service to send emails and some win apps supossed to call the service for sending emails. When I test the service via Visual studio development server everything is ok and it sends emails. But with IIS the smtpclient.send throw an exception whit this message : No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it [mailserver ip:port] The endpoint for VS development server is [URL] and for iis [URL] The smtp server is remote (gmail) and iis version is 6. I set the current local user as iis anonymous user. I am in LAN and my client firewall is off. There is an ISA server for the internet but I'm using a dialup connection for the internet. So why visual studio can send emails but iis can't?
I have implemented a send mail functionality. For that i installed the SMTP Service on my local machine by going to 'add remove programs' -> windows components -> iis (properties) -> checked the smtp service option and installed. Below is my code that i am using in my application to setup the smtpclient object and sendmail()
Now i don't know why i am getting 'Failure sending mail' error. Definitely i am missing something. what i am missing and how can this be fixed. This is frustrating me now as i dont know much in this area.
