How to configure the ASP.NET 2.0 Membership/Roles Provider

  1. I am trying to setup security and I am following "How to configure the ASP.NET 2.0 Membership/Roles Provider" step by step. Everything has worked great until I reached "5. Go to Website menu, and run the ASP.NET Configuration tool. This will open the Web Site Administration tool. " The issue is the "ASP.Net Configuration" option is not appearing. Could you please help me understand why that is not showing up? Very big thanks in advance for your help!

    Try this. Open VS and open a new .Net project. This will setup a aspx page and a web.config ifle. Go to that web.config file and setup the connection string to point to our SQL server. Then go to the ASPNet tool and create the membership.
    Now, you need to make sure that the membership/roles schema is setup on our SQL server so you will need to make sure you run the aspnet_regsql.exe against our SQL server.
