- Edit the web.config file settings:
- Browse to the web.config file in Windows Explorer on the Web server.
- Open web.config using Notepad and add the following line below the </authentication> section and before the ensuing <!-- line:
<identity impersonate="true" userName="administrator" password="password"/>There is an example of what the line should be in the Web.Config already. You can copy and paste this example below the </authentication> section and before the ensuing <!-- line and replace "administrator" and "password" with a valid user name and password.
Note: If FAWEB 7 is installed on the same machine as the financial or education software database, the user name and password is not required and should be left blank. Example: <identity impersonate="true" userName="" password=""/>
If the database is on a separate server, then a valid windows user and password must be added. Note: This user must be added as a Windows authentication login in SQL Server and requires Public role access and DB_Owner rights to the database. Also, ensure that this Windows account has at least Power User rights on the web server.
- Look for the line that reads <add key="UseTrustedConn" value="false" />
- Change false to true.
e.g. <add key="UseTrustedConn" value="true" />
- Save and close the web.config file.
- Change the security settings in IIS:
