    I have extensive programming experience in windows and asp.net 1.1 but I've
    just started looking at access control in 2.0 and I'm absolutely lost.
    (Background note: I'm writing a 2.0 website for a company intranet, no
    outside access so far as I know. I'm using Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition
    and I'm only allowed to use SQL Server 2000.)

    So before I do anything else I'd like to ask: Does the Web Site
    Adminstration Tool even work with SQL Server 2000? (I've read the WSAT help
    and I've run aspnet_regsql but I still can't get it to work. Still digging...)

    WSAT is (imho) more for the hobbyist or the most basic of web pages....and
    not a real enterprise application.

    It is mainly for altering roles inside the web.config file.

    I would RUN AWAY from it.

    You need to do some searching for
    "MembershipProvider" and "RoleProvider".

    Go here
    http://sholliday.spaces.live.com/Blog/cns!A68482B9628A842A!160.entry
    and find the scottgu link .... and you'll see how to work within the
    confines of Sql Server 2000 as well.

    VS2005 put a lot of stuff in .... which is geared toward RAPID development.
    I call that prototype development.
    So I'd say this...just because its in VS2005, doesn't mean you necessarily
    should be using it.

    Esp the WSAT. That thing was a complete waste of time.
    And it didn't work on a remote setup, only a local web.config file if I
    recall correctly. Aka, the hobbyist.


    Find the scottgu link ... and work with it. He's forgotten more about
    asp.net then most of us will ever learn.

    Thanks! Couldn't find a scottgu link on that actual page but with a little
    searching... I assume you meant this:
    http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/default.aspx

    Looks like I have a bit of reading to do....
