Membership provider issue

P: n/a
Hi, I am trying to play with the Survey manager application provided
gracefully by Microsoft at
"http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/sql/samples/" VB team(so many
thanks), compiled the win app, added 2 users beside the "thardy" user already
shipped with the aplication. I can not pass the Login page, I always get the
following message on the login page :

"Your login attempt was not successfull"

In spite of the fact I tried to harden the passwords with special caracters,
length of passwords more than 12 caracters...no way

I don't know how to debug the membership component, any help would be highly
appreciated. Is there any doc on how to troubleshoot those providers
thanks in advance

Hello eliassal,

From your description, you're using the "Surveymanager app" sample from
MSDN site and encounter some problem managing the accounts in the
application, correct?

I've downloaded the "Survey Application" and test it on my local
environment, it seems the user accounts can be created or modified
correctly as long as the database connection is correctly configured and
can be established.

for the problem you met, is it occurring whenever you try accessing any
data in the application(need communication with database). What I have
tried is using the windows form application to add two new accounts and the
account creation finished successfully. Also, if the operation also finish
correctly , but failed when you try logging them at runtime(in web
application), you can try directly open the mdf database file(in visual
studio server explorer) and check the username/password in the (Membership
and Users tables). The password format is cleartext.

Please feel free to let me know if you have anything unclear or if there is
any further problem.

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng

Hello Salam,

Thanks for your reply.

So if the user account data has been correctly inserted into the database,
the problem should be specific to the web application's membership data
accessing code logic.

Currently I think you can do the following check against the ASP.NET web
application part:

1. Since the default database is the database file in the class library
project and be installed into system folder(in microsoft samples folder),
have you ever changed it such as move it to other place or attach it into a
standard SQL Server instance? If so, have you made both the windows form
application/the class library and the ASP.NET membership provider's
connectionstring to the updated new value? ASP.NET membership provider
setting contains a connectionstring property that need to point to the
correct connectionstring entry in config file.

2. Since the ASP.NE membership provider can be called programmatically,
you can try the following code to check the membership API in the ASP.NET
application:

** Use "Membership.GetAllUsers()" to query all the existing users in
membership database to see whether all the users(include the one you added)
are retrieved.

** Use "Membership.ValidateUser(name, password)" to manually valdiate the
new users you added to see whether it works.

If you have any questions or any other finding, please feel free to post
here.
