Sitefinity Error: Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE'

  • Sitefinity Error: Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE'
  • Need a little help. Deployed a locally working Sitefinity 5.0 instance to external production servers and after making my way through all the small 'gotchas', I have run into this and have had no luck in getting past it.

    Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE'

    Exception Details: Telerik.OpenAccess.RT.sql.SqlException: Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE'.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hello Brett,

    The problem comes from the fact the account used in the application pool identity is not recognized as a trusted account ( account with proper permissions ) in the database. In order to resolve the issue, you can choose NetworkService as an application pool identity for the application pool used by the application. I have attached a screenshot of the setting.

    All the best,
