I am being tasked to find a replacement solution for our company Intranet and I wanted to "test drive" Sitefinity to see if it would be a good fit.
I used the Microsoft Web Platform Installer to install Sitefinity Community Edition on my Windows Server 2003 web server (IIS6) outside the "Default Web Site". I want to run Sitefinity using an AD account.
I created a new SQL 2000 database, "SitefinityCE", on my Windows 2000 Advanced Server. The AD account has dbo permissions.
I am stuck at Step 2 in the Project Startup "Set Database". I am getting the following error message:
"There was an error trying to connect to the Database Server: Login failed for user 'xxxx_user'." (Where xxxx_user is the AD account with dbo permissions)
I've not found Sitefinity installation and configuration instructions for my specific configuration:
Sitefinity Web Server: Windows Server 2003 ASP.NET 3.5
Sitefinity Database Server: MS SQL Server 2000 on Windows 2000 Advanced Server
I have posted the following screenshots on one of our Internet Web Servers...
Product Startup Error Message
If you could provide me with specific instructions of what to look for in the configuration of IIS / SQL and permissions for the AD account, I would be greatly appreciative. I am extremely eager to showcase your product to my VP but can't get past this stumbling block.
