I'm trying to set up a Sharepoint 2010 solution with form based authenication (claims). ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider workes find as memebership provider, we need the be able to add ad groups using forms based.

Is there a good AD role provider that can be used with SharePoint form based authentication in SharePoint 2010.

Either I didn't get your question or I am missing something, but if you want to use AD for authentication why go for Forms Authentication? – Arsalan Adam Khatri Nov 13 '12 at 14:55

You can use this one: "Microsoft.Office.Server.Security.LdapRoleProvider, Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c"
