  • SharePoint cannot store a user account.  User accounts must come from another source, such as Active Directory, SQL database, etc.

  • Don't think of these as profiles.  They're user accounts.  Profiles are different (they describe attributes about a user account).

    Here is how to use a SQL database and set up FBA on SharePoint:
