ASPNETDB Problem - Unable to connect to SQL Server database

    I tried using the ASP.Net Web Site Administration Tool to setup security for
    a web site I'm creating using VS 2005 C#. When clicking on the Security tab,
    I get the error message: "Unable to connect to SQL Server database". I then
    created the ASPNETDB database with the ASPNET_REGSQL utility in the
    Windows\\Framework\v2.0.50727 and can now see the database in
    SQL Server Management Studio (I'm running SQL Server 2005). I tried the Web
    Site Administration Tool and got the same error. It is interesting that the
    tool does not ask for the server name or the database. Is it getting this
    info from some setting setup by the ASPNET_REGSQL utility when creating the
    ASPNETDB database?

    I have no problems connecting from my application or VS proper to the
    database, only from the Web Site Administration Tool. What am I missing?

    Thanks for any pointers.
