Connection String Config

Sep 17, 2010 at 4:16 PM

Hey,

     I was able to deploy the solution, and the control panel appeared in the site features.  I had a SQL database created for SLAM and copied the dummy config file to the root of the site collection.  I then entered the database and login information but it won't connect.  I then created a System DNS connection in ODBC with the same information and that connected just fine.  What could be missing or is there any additional information for the connection string config?  Also, does this need to be activated in the site collection the lists exist in, or can it span across site collections / Web Applications?

Thank you.

SLAM can span across site collections within a web application. It cannot span across web applications, however.

Re the connection string, we’re not doing anything special in SLAM so the issue is almost certainly permissions. Use SA permissions rather than integrated.
