System.Data.Entity.Core.EntityException: 'The Underlying Provider Failed On Open.' Error?

- 1 answer

I'm working on creating a point-of-sale system using an MVC model in C# and SQL Server, but I seem to be having some kind of issue connecting to the database.

The program begins to run and opens a browser window (IIS Express Google Chrome), but the window stays stuck loading while trying to connect to "https://localhost:44378/" and throws these 2 errors.

System.Data.Entity.Core.EntityException: 'The underlying provider failed on Open.'
SqlException: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)
System.Data.Entity.Core.EntityException: 'The underlying provider failed on Open.'
Win32Exception: The network path was not found

I have been trying to resolve this for a couple of days now, but I can't seem to find out what's wrong and I could really use some help resolving this.

[EDIT #1]

After applying @DavidBrowne-Microsoft's advice, the errors I was having have been fixed, but now it throws "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Login failed for user." (SqlException (0x80131904)) in Line 26 of FacultyAdmin.cs, which I will attach below.

Here is the actual text of the Server Error:

Server Error in '/' Application.
Login failed for user ''.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

[EDIT #2]

I'm adding this to explore a possible error in my Connection String/SQL Server configuration.

Answer

Try adding Trusted_Connection=True; to your connection string

<add name="mythellaneouspc.Cafeteria_POS" 
         connectionString="metadata=res://*/Models.Cafeteria_POSModel.csdl|res://*/Models.Cafeteria_POSModel.ssdl|res://*/Models.Cafeteria_POSModel.msl;
         provider=System.Data.SqlClient;
         provider connection string=&quot;
         Data Source= Cafeteria_POS; 
         Initial Catalog=Cafeteria_POS; 
         Trusted_Connection=True;
         MultipleActiveResultSets=True;
         App=EntityFramework&quot;"
         providerName="System.Data.EntityClient" />
