    I'm seen previous postings with this issue, but none of them seem to address what's going on for me.

    I'm getting the error on a new development installation.  I've made sure the projectname matches the one in dbo.sf_page_node (the one difference is the app_name there is "Test/" and in the ProjectConfig.config file it is "Test" , but changing this doesn't seem to make a difference.

    I've duplicated the databases locally, and made sure that all permissions were correctly moved over.  I don't think it could be a database connection since the DB is running locally.

    Can someone help with what might be going on here?

    Hello Tim,

    There are several reasons for that error, mainly concerning how your system configuration files are communicating with your database server. All those reasons and the different resolutions of that issue are explained in this post. Please have a look at it as it contains valuable information about the exception.

    However based on what we have seen so far, I think that the website has created the dbo tables ( which are empty ) most probably because the user that you have to manage the SQL server is not owner of the custom schema you have applied. Can you verify the last suggestion as based on your information, your project should be set correct already.

    All the best,
