Membership credential verification failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having problems setting up the AspNetSqlMembershipProvider for the Authentication Provider in SharePoint 2007. I have configured the AspNetSqlMembershipProvider in both the Sharepoint web.config and Central Admin web.config.

    The Site Collection Administrators page on Central Admin site works, it retrieves a list of users. The Sharepoint site returns the following message no matter what user I try:

    The server could not sign you in. Make sure your user name and password are correct, and then try again.

    Also, every time I try to log in I receive the following message in the event log:

    Here is the membership portion of web.config:

            <clear />
              <add connectionStringName="BanPort" enablePasswordRetrieval="false"
              enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true"
              applicationName="/" requiresUniqueEmail="false"
              passwordFormat="Hashed" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5"
              minRequiredPasswordLength="7" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="1"
              passwordAttemptWindow="10" passwordStrengthRegularExpression=""
              name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"/>

    I know about the "applicationName" property. I checked the database, there is only 1 application and it's path is "/".

  • We had this issue with the ADMembershipProvider and discovered the cause was another account with the same UPN in a different OU.

    In other words, it seems the Provider throws this error if it detects more than one account with the name it's trying to authenticate. We can easily create a copy of the same provider but authenticating at the OU level rather than at the root level.
