People picker not recognizing membership provider

  Asked By: Michael    Date: Aug 15    Category: MOSS    Views: 2279

Setting: MOSS 2007 Enterprise, in the SSP site under Central Admin.

I'm trying to add a new user profile based on a recent FBA user that I added
to my standard (port 80) default site collection. However, when I go to Add
Profile and type the FBA username, it doesn't recognize it. I have already
added the membership provider goodness to the SSP web.config -- copied
directly from the other app so I know it's right -- but it won't light up.

Am I forgetting something?

Is the user in the same domain? I recently had problems with the people picker,
but that was in a front end site. I couldn't add users from outside the OU of
the user I installed SP with.

did you put this is webconfig ?

<clear />
<add key="FBA_AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" value="%" />

Yup; the correct name for the provider and everything.

Still, the adding of FBA (on an extended app from the SSP) made the
difference. Bizarre.

Oddly enough, what finally made the difference was one of those "well, it
can't hurt" moves.

I extended the SSP web application and set up FBA on the new URL. From then
on, People Picker worked just fine for all users.
