A quick post on problems with Forms Based Authentication – FBA.
If you get odd errors when you try to log in through forms authentication you might have a few problems with the following places:
- Web.Configs are not configured properly – There are three places where you need to make configuration for your membership providers
- “Claims to Windows Token Service” server service need to be started from Central Administration -> “System Settings” -> “Manage services on Server”
- User Policy settings must be correct – Check that you have given access rights to your AD users that are to be authenticated through the membership provider
- And as an added extra if you want to make a custom log in page follow these instructions:http://blogs.msdn.com/b/kaevans/archive/2010/07/09/creating-a-custom-login-page-for-sharepoint-2010.aspx
