Configuring Connection Strings in IIS 7

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

A connection string provides the information that an application or provider must have to communicate with a particular database. A connection string usually supplies the server or location of the database server, the particular database to use, and the authentication information. If you use a connection string, this enables you to connect to databases from managed code applications in a centralized manner.

For information about the levels at which you can perform these procedures, and the modules, handlers, and permissions that are required for these procedures, see Database Connection Strings Feature Requirements (IIS 7).
