Entity Framework: The underlying provider failed on Open - through WCF service

.net c# entity-framework iis wcf

Question

I have a WCF service that runs on IIS and it can't access the SQL Server that runs on the same machine. If I use the WCF Test Client it works fine. What can be the problem? Thx!

Contents of the service's web.config:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Accepted Answer

Probably the app pool user you have the WCF service running against does not have permissions to access the sql database. You can either add yourself as a user or assign permissions for the current app pool user.
