Website Admin Tool

Can I use the Website Administration tool to manage users and roles for
multiple ASP.NET applications using a single, common ASPNETDB?

If so, what changes do I have to make to the web.config files for these
various applications to allow authentication from that single ASPNETDB.

I'd also like to be able to maintain the users/roles and application access
from the web server rather than from my development computer. Right now it
seems like I have to make changes to user/roles in each web app and then
transfer the database and code over to the server, just to add a new user.

And each app seems to have it's own ASPNETDB which defeats the goal of a
single point of administration for the server.

Thank you,

Hi Stullhe,

As for the multiple application use common membership/role database, do you
mean all those web applications' users/roles are completely identical and
you want all of them point to the same backend database?

If this is the case, I think you can consider move the membershp, role
manager database to a central SQL Server database(hosted on a SQL Server
instance accessible by all the web applications) instead of using the
default sqlexpress database.

by default, ASP.NET sqlmemberhsip provider use a SQLExpress database file
(in App_Data directory), you can find the default setting in the
machine.config file (the "LocalSqlServer " connectionstrin g). You can
override this setting in your ASP.NET application's web.config file

#Membership and Role Providers in ASP.NET 2.0 Part II
http://www.odetocode.com/Articles/428.aspx

and the following article also mentioned how you can setup all the
necessary ASP.NET service tables/components in an external sql server
database:

#Configuring ASP.NET 2.0 Application Services to Use SQL Server 2000 or SQL
Server 2005

If there is anything unclear, welcome to post here.

Sincerely,

Happily, you got an answer. However:

There was no way for you to know it (except maybe by browsing through some
of the previous questions in this newsgroup before posting yours - always a
recommended practice) , but this is a classic (COM-based) asp newsgroup.
ASP.Net bears very little resemblance to classic ASP so, while you may be
lucky enough to find a dotnet-knowledgeable person here who can answer your
question, you can eliminate the luck factor by posting your question to a
group where those dotnet-knowledgeable people hang out. I suggest
microsoft.publi c.dotnet.framew ork.aspnet or the forums at www.asp.net.

Thanks for your input Bob,

I just forgot to mentioned that this newsgroup is for classic ASP. Should
have included in my last reply :)
