I recently added integrated windows authentication (stopped allowing anonymous access) to my asp.net application. It seems to work ok, but database access is exceedingly slow -- the DBA has decided not to allow integrated windows authentication, so instead I use sql server authentication and pass the credentials for the single user to the database.

Any ideas what's happening here?

Thanks for any help.

Try looking into how the sql server authentication works. There should be a few different ways you can accomplish your task.

My bet, it that one of the other methods would be faster.
