How to handle System.Data.Entity.Validation.DbEntityValidationException?

My app gets the following error:

An exception of type
'System.Data.Entity.Validation.DbEntityValidationException' occurred
in EntityFramework.dll but was not handled in user code

Additional information: Validation failed for one or more entities.
See 'EntityValidationErrors' property for more details.

I get this error when trying to register a new user. Error happens on 'db.SaveChanges()'

Here is the code:

public ActionResult Registration(x.Models.User user)
using(var db = new xDBEntities1())
var crypto = new SimpleCrypto.PBKDF2();
var encrpPass = crypto.Compute(user.password);
var sysUser = db.users.Create(); =;
sysUser.username = user.username;
sysUser.password = encrpPass;
sysUser.premium_credits = 0;
sysUser.login_times = 0;
sysUser.last_ip = Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"];
sysUser.creation_ip = Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"];
sysUser.banned = 0;
sysUser.creation_date = DateTime.Now;
sysUser.creation_time = DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay;

return RedirectToAction("Index", "Home");

User model class

public class User
[Display(Name="Username: ")]
public String username { get; set; }
[Display(Name="Password: ")]
public string password { get; set; }
public string email { get; set; }
public int phonenumber { get; set; }
public int mobilephonenumber { get; set; }


How can I handle it ?


There is some sort of database validation happening preventing you from writing the data into it.

The solution is already stated on this page:

Validation failed for one or more entities. See 'EntityValidationErrors' property for more details

As an extra note to this as you are using .net mvc you should use System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine() instead of Console.Writeline() and this will write to the debug output window when you are debugging. As you cannot write to the console when running a mvc project.
