I am using FBA on a wss 3.0 site, I can create new users in the DB by using the ASP.NET management site. The users can then log in, but receive an error: access denied message.
So, I know that the accounts are being authenticated properly (since when i type the username or password incorrectly I get a different message, "the server could not sign you in")
I have working fba accounts on the site since I set this up over a year ago. I can log in fine using those, and the people picker recognizes those accounts with membership provider i.e.: FBAMember:testaccount - the people picker will recognize this and allow me to add it to more groups.
But the picker does not recognize any of the accounts I just created using the management tool, using the same connection string i'm using in the web.config of the sp site.
Any ideas on what's wrong?
So, FBAMember:membername is listed as the account name for the accounts already in sharepoint, but I can't even add those accounts to a new group, I get a SP error "the user or group is unknown". .. so, these users can log in, but for some reason that's it.
