Point to Active Directory; Login screen

Aug 20, 2013 at 5:15 PM
Is it possible to point this to an "Active Directory" db? Has any1 done this?

Does this FBA pack have a classic first step Login Screen?

Is there any more doc on how to use this? I haven't looked at the 2010/2007 version yet.

I've never tested it with Active Directory - only with the SQLMembershipProvider. Nobody has ever mentioned on the forums being able to get this working with Active Directory, so i'd say no.

There's no login screen for the FBA Pack, since 2010 and 2013 include an FBA login screen. It includes:
User and role management pages
change password web part
forgot password web part
registration web part

There would be quiet a bit of code required to make the user mainteneace routines in SqlServer. Something like active directory has all that code already.

Is there any code on "someone types in a bad password 3 times in a row" so they get redirected a slightly different login screen?

The sql membership provider does have a failed password limit - the only problem is that it locks the user out - so they cannot login again until an administrator unlocks the account.
