Importing Existing Users into New ASP.NET Membership Table

P: n/a
I am setting up a new web application with ASP.NET 2.0 and I was
wanting to utilize the 2.0 Membership and Profiles system. However, I
am having a lot of trouble importing a table of user info into the
aspnet_Users table due to the unique identifiers and large number of
dependencies this new system has.

Is there any way to easily import exisiting user data into the 2.0
Membership system without having to do data entry for 200+ users?

Also, is anyone using this system? I can't find much feedback on the
messageboards like the other technologies that I utilize.

I haven't seen any "importers" yet, although I am sure that with all the
interest and the dozens of articles both by MS and developers promoting the
scheme, somebody will surely write one. It's basically just observing SQL
constraints while importing data into SQL tables.

As far as anyone using it, yes lots of people are. In fact, I wrote a SQLite
Membership/Roles provider class to use the SQLite database engine instead of
MSAccess or SQL Server. Somebody else wrote one for MySql.

Of course, nothing is stopping you from using your own database arrangement
and performing Forms Authentication / roles against it instead of the
provided infrastructure.

It's a great time-saver.

I also dumped the userid as a foreign key in other tables, and it made
the whole thing easier to code.
