I think I have the same issue because I'm trying to setup
Integrated Security in my connection string for an
ASP.NET app.

So does this mean I can create an IUSER_<website> account
for each website I have running and give that IUSR
account access to it's respective SQL Database?

Right now the only way I got Integrated Security to work
and connect to the sample Northwind database was to add a
SQL Login as <mymachine>\ASPNET and giving the ASPNET
account access to Northwind DB.

In a real scenerio I think I should have a different
machine account for each website and it's supporting
databases only.

Can you confirm? Thanks,Dave
