    Hi,

    I've been getting this error every once in awhile with my sitefinity RC1 when I move the site to an external server instead of running it on my local pc. The server is running SQL server 2005, 2000 and 2005 Express. I setup sitefinity RC1 on 2005 express on my local pc. I noticed in my web.config file it has the connection string:

    <connectionStrings>
            <add name="Sitefinity" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|Sitefinity.mdf" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
        </connectionStrings>

    Can anyone help?

    Hello Joe,

    A similar problem has already been reported but we were unable to reproduce it in our environment. Can you help us to reproduce or debug this problem? Do you use load balancing or web garden on the external server?

    Sorry for the inconvenience, 
    Bob

    Hi, the webserver is just a single webserver with IIS6 and SQL Server 2000, 2005, and 2005 express installed directly on it.

    Hi Joe,

    We will definitely need your further assistance to fix this. Please send us your sitefinity.log file located in /Your Project /App_Data folder and your project  Web.config file.
