Awesome solution so far but one step I can't get past that will be a show stopper. My FBA sites are set up to use AD as the membership provider and I cannot get the Add User web part to work. Always get the error in the subj line. Or the Role management for that matter, would rather user the Sharepoint roles but is it a requirement to create/enable a role manager for the site?

Can we even use AD as a membership provider?

Living and learning...
Thanks!

Just add <roleManager enabled="true" /> in <system.web>.

Thanks but...

I've read that article 15 times and everything else I find about using AD as the membership provider for Forms Auth but always they just say " Register the role manager (optional). " no optional help :(

So I added exactly as you stated in the web config for both my default zone/Windows auth and Internet zone/Forms auth web apps. Double checked them in IIS. Now when I try to access site setting via either route I get "http://internet/_layouts/settings.aspx" "File not found" errors... I am very new at all this so any suggestions, even scrapping AD as the provider is appreciated immensly. Customer waiting for the solution.

I am not really using AD. I'm also new at this and I missed the part where you stated you use AD. I keep my users in an SQL DB. If I will find something else I will let you know.
