I have an issue where I've set up a connection string at the Machine level in IIS, and it is inherited all the way down as expected... EXCEPT for the application I want to use the string in. Other applications at the same level do inherit the string.
The application in the past had the connection string with the same name defined. Removing it at the application level removes it permanently: it will not be inherited. Adding it at the application level makes it local. I can't find a way for that application to inherit the connection string.
Is there some way to reset this behavior? Short of removing the application entirely?
