Look throw configuration and find connection string
(also helpful to search it in DB code layer)

a. Before testing get the configuration details of test environment from the project team.
b.Verify the database information that is given in the configuration file that has been released for testing. It should match with the database for test environment setup.

There may be a case when DB connection string is not specified in the app.config / web.config or any other config file. In that case, you need to get this information from the DB layer (if any). Once you get this information, you can start SQL profiler to verify this information.
