Allowing Administrators To Change SQL Server Connection?

Apr 7, 2010

What is your opinion on allowing administrators to update the SQL Server Connection string dynamically from the application versus just showing them the connection details in the application? Because the database connection is so important and on a heavily used system the abrupt change to the connection seems like it could cause problems. However I would think displaying the server and catalog and whether the connection is using SSPI or SQL Auth could be helpful for administrators who don't like playing with .NET config files.

Configuration :: Use To Copy/publish Websites To Web Server Is Not Allowing Us Access To Push Websites?

Oct 15, 2010

the account we use to copy/publish websites to our web server is not allowing us access to push websites. I've added this account to the permissions in the links listed in the below link, but i don't have success when trying to push remotely. When the account is in the local admins account, everything works flawlessly, but we are not allowed to have it in there. I've googled and searched a lot for this particular error, but am not finding an answer that helps. We get this error, 'Unable to create the Web 'http://edea01/test/planning'. You are not authorized to perform the current operation', and the above link is the scenario that matches mine the most. I don't do develompment work, but am asked to figure out this connection problem.

Change SqlDataSource Connection String In C# Dynamically

Jun 1, 2010

I have a page in (web forms) that up until now only had one database for data.

So all the controls that require something from the database use a datasource and the same connection string.

<asp:SqlDataSource id="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:DefaultConnectionString %>"
SelectCommand="SELECT ... ">

Up until now I only needed one connection string since I had only one database but this has changed since I want some users to connect to database A and others to database B What would be the correct way to go about it?

ADO.NET :: Change Connection String Of Linq To Sql Entities?

Sep 9, 2010

I have a solution which uses Linq to SQL Data Classes to acced the db. I have a project for my domain objects in my solution, which is a class library and has the dbml file. When I set up the dmbl using the wizard, Visual Studio created anapp.config file on that project with the connection string. It also creatting asettings file with the same info. I've noticed that if I change the connection string in the settings file, the app.config gets updated, which is the expected behaviour.

However, I'm having a problem when I deploy my web site to the production server. I already set the app.config file's Build Action to "Content", and also set Copy to ouput directory to "Always". Nevertheless, when I install the web site and change the connection string in the app.config file, it still takes the old connection string, so obviously I get an error. I've found that it only works if I change it with in Visual Studio and then compile, but of course that's not an optimal solution, because any change in the production db server would mean I have to change my project's assembly, thus generating a new version.

What do I have to configure so that the assembly takes the connection string form my app.config file directly after I deploy?
