ASP.NET - Login failed for user 'DOMAIN\MACHINENAME$'

To avoid below error,
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Login failed for user 'DOMAIN\MACHINENAME$'.

1. Try to prepare proper SQL connection string as

Initial Catalog=your_db_schema;
Integrated Security=False;
User ID=your_db_login; Password=??????" 

2. Remove Persist Security Info=True;

3. Other resolution:
In SQL Management Studio create an account for "DOMAIN\MACHINENAME" (do not browse for the account name, type it in manually) and then grant this account db_owner access to the SLAD database. After this, reinstall the product.
