My VB.Net code connects to SQL Server. On my PC, it succeeds. On IIS running on the same machine as SQL Server, it fails. Any ideas?
Server (IIS and SQL) info: VB.Net, connection string providerName="System.Data.SqlClient", Windows Server 2008 SP2.
My PC info: Run website in Visual Studio 2019. Connects to same DB using same connection string (not local db and not as a different user).
Code (fails on second line):
oConn = ConnectionService.DatabaseName.Connect
Connection string: connectionString="Data Source=IP Address\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;Integrated Security=False;Persist Security Info=False;User ID=Username;Password=Password;" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"
Error message: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): 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: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The network path was not found
