Intermittant Error in Session

We are intermittantly getting the following error:

The FogBUGZ database is down or could not be found.

For security reasons, this cannot be fixed over the web.

Please edit the registry on the FogBUGZ server. The setting you want is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Fog Creek Software\FogBUGZ\C:/Program Files/FogBUGZ/website\sConnectionString.

To use SQL Server, set this to Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=server;Initial Catalog=database;Integrated Security=SSPI;

To use Access, set this to Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=filename

Or, you can always use an ODBC data source name, which you establish using the Data Sources (ODBC) control panel.

Error: -2147217843: Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'.

It seems like it is session specific and happens randomly (usually when trying to update a bug). If you close and re-open the browser, everything is fine. It's like it loses the db connection or something. The db is up  and running fine. Any ideas?

Did you upgrade from 2.0?

Have you tried setting the Windows user that IIS for FogBugz runs under?

See this page for instructions on where to find it:
