    We have the same database on multiple servers. How can I programmatically via a web app change connection on the fly to a different server. All databases have the same name and schema.

    Hello Ken,

    You can use the constructor of the OpenAccessContext class which takes a connection parameter and pass a connection string or connection string name (if the connection string is itself present in the .config file). To switch to another server it is enough just to create a new context instance with the appropriate connection string. Here is an example:

    string connectionOne = @"data source=.\sqlexpress;initial catalog=Northwind;integrated security=True";
    string connectionTwo = @"data source=.\MSSQL;initial catalog=Northwind;integrated security=True";
    //Work with database one
    NorthwindEntityDiagrams context = new NorthwindEntityDiagrams(connectionOne);
    Category category = new Category() { CategoryName = "CategoryOne" };
    //Work with database two
    context = new NorthwindEntityDiagrams(connectionTwo);
    category = new Category() { CategoryName = "CategoryTwo" };

    Hope that helps.
