problem of configuring authorization RRS feed

  • Question

  • User76000080 posted

    hello  community,

    I have a problem concerning the management of authorization to the pages of a web application that I develop in asp.net with sql server 2008 r2 external database. I have configured my database by executing the framework aspnet_reqsql 4 since I use Visual Studio 2010 to develop my application. when I run the asp.net website administration tool, and I click the Security tab I get the following error: "An error occurred during initialization of an object attempts . System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection the value provided for the connection string is incorrect or the syntax is valid may not parameter name. connectionString "
    so I use forms authentication via a table "employee" contained in my database to connect to my application
    is what this error is because I am using sql server 2008 r2 for my database?
    If yes / no, how to solve the problem.

      here is the creation of code for my membership and rolemanager to the web.config:

    <membership defaultProvider="HEALTHBOARD_Membership">
        <clear />
        <add connectionStringName="ApplicationServices" enablePasswordRetrieval="false"
         enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"
         requiresUniqueEmail="false" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" minRequiredPasswordLength="6"
         minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" passwordAttemptWindow="10"
         applicationName="/" name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" />
        <add connectionStringName="csthealthboard" name="HEALTHBOARD_Membership"
         type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" />
    				<add name="AspNetSqlProfileProvider" type="System.Web.Profile.SqlProfileProvider" connectionStringName="ApplicationServices" applicationName="/"/>
    	<roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="HEALTHBOARD_RoleManager">
        <clear />
        <add connectionStringName="ApplicationServices" applicationName="/"
         name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider" />
        <add applicationName="/" name="AspNetWindowsTokenRoleProvider"
         type="System.Web.Security.WindowsTokenRoleProvider" />
        <add connectionStringName="csthealthboard" name="HEALTHBOARD_RoleManager"
         type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider" />

    please help me

    Can you please show your connectionstrings section from your web.config  (without your real user/pass please) ? Also, I remember that the Web configuration tool require a connection string with name "LocalSqlServer", so try to add a connection string with that name and give it the same connection string of your app.

    I changed the name of my connectionstring "ApplicationServices" with "LocalSqlServer" but it still does not work.
    can you give me more information on the use of "LocalSqlServer"

    Hi narom,

    Welcome to the ASP.NET forum.

    According to your description, I noticed that you make some Membership configuration in web.config file

    Please refer to the code below that Membership configuration.

    1. Configure the Connection String

        <add name="ConnStr" connectionString="Data Source=(LocalDb)\v11.0;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\aspnet-MemberShip_RoleManager-20141118052934.mdf;Initial Catalog=aspnet-MemberShip_RoleManager-20141118052934;Integrated Security=True"
          providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

    2. Configure Memberhsip

    <membership defaultProvider="mySqlMembershipProvider">     //the defaultProvider and name is consistent
            <add name="mySqlMembershipProvider"
                type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
                connectionStringName="ConnStr"        //ConnectionString Name

    3. Configure RoleManager

    <roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="myAspNetSqlRoleProvider">     //the defaultProvider and name is consistent
            <add name="myAspNetSqlRoleProvider"
                 connectionStringName="ConnStr"    //The Connection String Name 
                 type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />

    4. Configure Forms authentication

    <authentication mode="Forms">
          <forms loginUrl="MemberShipWebsite\Login.aspx"

    Best Regards,

    "Unable to establish a connection to a SQL Server database"

    About this issue, I think it is caised by your database connection. so check whether you connectionString is correct, and confirm the database is exist and the path is right.

    connectionString="Data Source=(LocalDb)\v11.0;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\aspnet-MemberShip_RoleManager-20141118052934.mdf;

    Best Regards,
