  • hi, out of the box, SPS 2010 supports both Windows and Forms Authentication, you cannot use both of them together, can't you create a new site with Forms authentication?


    Yes, you CAN use both of them together.  You could do it in 2007, too, except you had to extend the web app.  In 2010, you have to use a Claims Mode web app to leverage FBA, and you can include Windows Auth in the same web app.

    Soha, you have to set up an entire membership and role provider using SQL server and ASP.NET.  The info will not be in a list unless you maybe connect to that membership DB with BCS and an external list.  This is a significant architectural question, decision, and implementation.  Are you the architect for this implementation?  (Moving to the Admin forum)
