Iis7 - Is It Possible To Use Iis 7 To Manage Users When Using Forms Authentication

Mar 22, 2010

I have an ASP.NET web application that is using forms authentication. Everything is configured and working correctly. However, i'm dealing with the issue of creating and maintaining users and role membership.

I know that I can roll my own solution but I'm wondering if there is an alternative solution?

Does iis7 provide screens for managing forms authentication users? Is there a reliable, free solution that someone would recommend?

Security :: Regain Access To Manage Users And Roles For This Application?

Sep 23, 2010

I am working on an application that resides on a development server on our internal network. The application was originally written to use Membership and Roles. We got busy almost a year ago before the app was finished, and now we are trying to get it ready to use internally.

The login page works just fine, but I have lost the ability to controls users and roles. I am running Visual Studio 2010 Professional now on a Windows 7 VM. I can open the application fine but there is no Web Administration Tool available for me to manage users or roles. If I go to Website -> in Visual Studio, there is no option for ASP.NET Configuration in the drop down menu. It simply isn't there.

How can I regain access to manage users and roles for this application? We are using Forms authentication and the database resides on a SQL Server 2005 instance on a separate box from the web server and my local VM.

Web Forms :: SSRS IIS7 Authentication Breaking Ajax?

Mar 11, 2011

Before I get started it's important to note that this issue only happens in IIS7 and IE7, which means it works fine in all our IIS6 environments and Chrome and Firefox hitting IIS7.

We have an ASP.NET 3.5 application that is doing a very basic window.open to open our report server.


window.open('http://555.55.5.55/ReportServer', 'Reports');

Once launched the user is prompted for their username and password. If the user selects cancel and goes back to the parent window they can use all the Ajax functionality just fine; however, if the user logs into report server then all the Ajax functionality on the parent window ceases to work (example error below). We changed the javascript line above to popup a window to google and everything worked fine. We even tried changing it to '_self' to act like a redirect and we had the same results, everything failed. The issue appears to be related to something in IE7 and the authentication popup.

We've already set the application pool hosting the site in IIS7 to classic mode and this did not resolve our problem.


Error: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: The message received from the server could not be parsed. Common causes for this error are when the response is modified by call to Reponse.Write(), response filters, HttpModules, or server trace is enabled.

Security :: Net Users And Net Roles Features Not Available In IIS7

I'm running IIS7 ( in integrated mode ) and Net. 4.0 framework on Windows 7.

a) If web application runs within Asp.Net v4.0 pool, then both Net Users and Net Roles features are not available.

b) I assume Asp.Net 4.0 apps can only run within Asp.Net v4.0 pools?

Security :: IIS7 And Windows Authentication?

Mar 24, 2010

I have an application that ran fine on a Win 2003 box using windows authentication. After installing the app on a 32-bit Windows Server 2008 box the users are now prompted for domain credentials every time they call the site. I went into IIS manager for IIS7 and disabled anonymous authentication and enabled windows authentication. What do I need to do here for the user to not be prompted for the credentials?

Security :: Mixed Mode Authentication With IIS7?

Jan 20, 2011

I'm having a tough time implementing mixed-mode authentication (windows & forms based) for my application using IIS 7. Doing it in IIS6 is easy, but the process doesn't translate to 7/7.5 - and my research has led to me to conflicting answers, none of which.

I have redirect page called WindowsLogin.aspx, and a forms-based one called Login.aspx. I'm having difficulty enabling Windows authentication for just WindowsLogin.aspx.

Activate Form Authentication For CSV Files In IIS7?

Sep 28, 2010

I have a website on IIS 7. This website has a HttpModule with an AuthorizeRequest event handler. This event does not fire for CSV files and I can access the file without logging in, I guess this is because IIS7 is not configured to require form autentication for CSV files.

Crystal Reports :: XI For VS.NET On IIS7 With Windows Authentication?

Feb 10, 2010

I've got an ASP.NET web app that uses Crystal Reports XI Release 2 (Service Pack 4 + Fix Pack 4.1), and when I use Windows Authentication, the report still passes the application pool identity to the database instead of the user's identity. Every other portionof the program sends the user's identity (checked using SQL profiler). I know I've gotten this working on a client's windows 2008 server before, but I don't have access to that machine to make a comparison with the one I'm working on. I'm pretty sure it's an IIS configuration issue, but I can't seem to find the thing that's causing the Crystal reports to behave differently from the rest of the application.

C# - Skip Authentication For Certain User Agents On IIS7?

Aug 30, 2010

I'm writting a software in C# and .NET to manage my store, which has a site where you can go and opt in to receive a sellers person visit. This site has an behind the scenes manager, but I want the software to do this instead, effectively removing the browser manager and the first step towards this goal is to allow the software access to a PHP script that generates tha XML file required.

The problem is, the login mechanics, written in C# and using web.config, doesn't allow the software to access the said script, which is inside a protected folder for the browser manager. I already tried using HttpWebRequest object, WebClient object with lots os combinations of post, credentials, streams and even a special user-agent to try and login, without success, I can only download the login page.

Here's the code I'm using to download data at the moment (That's my latest try, using the special header):

string agent = "AGENT"; //Not real name, it's just confidential
WebClient client = new WebClient();
client.Headers["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] = agent;
client.DownloadFileCompleted += new AsyncCompletedEventHandler(DownloadFileCompletedEvtHdl);
client.DownloadProgressChanged += new DownloadProgressChangedEventHandler(DownloadProgressChangedEvtHdl);
if (!Directory.Exists(toSavePath))
if (File.Exists(toSavePath + filename))
File.Delete(toSavePath + filename);
client.DownloadFileAsync(new Uri(url), toSavePath + filename);

The login page is pretty simple, it only assings a click event to the login button to check if the user and password are the same in web.config. If true, got to redirect page, else, error.

So, what's the best method for this? Is there any way to configure IIS7 to skip the authentication on that special user agent or some other custom header? Or I'm going the wrong way?

VS 2010 / IIS7 - Mixed Mode Authentication

Sep 14, 2011

I am trying to implement single sign on for users within our domain and if the are not then they get re-directed to the login screen to use forms authentication.

I have followed this tutorial below

however I get two issues firstly if I go to my forms authentication page no css or images now display and if i try to login i get an error.

If I go to the login page which should recognise me from the AD I get 401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Forms Authentication For Users And Windows For Database?

Jun 14, 2010

On our production servers, the admins created a WebUser active directory account which is users for anonymous access to IIS and is also used to authenticate database access with our SQL Server instances using Integrated Security=SSPI in the connection string and identity impersonate="true" in the web.config.

I've often come across situations where I would like to or even need to use forms authentication. However, I using forms authentication, Integrated Security seems to use the logged in user's credentials to authenticate against the database. In these cases I have changed the connection string to use the credentials of a SQL Server users instead. I would prefer to not have a hard coded username and password in the connection string or rather worse in code. Is it possible to use forms authentication just for user authentication for users and windows authentication with the IIS user for database access? What would be the best practice in such a situation?

Migrate Existing Users To Forms Authentication?

Feb 19, 2010

How do I migrate users from a existing users table to Forms Authentication?

There seems to be three options:

T-SQL - Iterate through the existing users table and insert into Forms Authentication tables using the stored procedure aspnet_Membership_CreateUser Code - create a utility that will iterate through the existing users table and insert into Forms Authentication tables using Membership.CreateUser() Code - as users login verify credentials against existing users table and insert into Forms Authentication tables using Membership.CreateUser()

Which is the most practical?

I have been currently trying option 1 but I am running into difficulties using the password salt to create the encrypted password from a plain text password

Security :: Forms Authentication Users Expire Randomly?

Mar 11, 2010

I set up forms authentication in my asp.net application, and everything works apparently without problems. However from time to time some of the users trying to log in inform me that suddenly they cannot enter anymore as their user seems to be deactivated. Even if they try the forgot password entry, they get "user not found" response, but if I check the user is still there, and according to asp.net configuration it is even active.The only solution I found until now to reactivate the user is to remove it and create it again, and then it works. But it cannot work like this of course.
