Sign in problem

  Asked By: Loren    Date: Sep 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1079

I tried to use FBA (forms-based authentocation) for a web application site.
i embedded code into web.config in both central admin and web application
sites under wss\virtualdirectories\port#\ and i set up web form in central
admin and when i try to access the site it pops up sign-in page ask for
username and password. i type in user credentials (domain administrators
group) it gives me the err msg like: Error: Access Denied
under err msg it read You're currently signed in as: xxxx. My question is:
1) in such situation am i in or not?
2) if i am in why can't i see the site? if I am not authenticated why i
see "You are currently signed in as: xxx" msg?
3) what else shoud i set via central admin or somewhere else? i already
set up the login user permissions in that site.

You are currently Authorized, but not Authenticated. In other words
SharePoint knows who you are, but you don't have any rights to the site
or site  collection. You need to go into Central admin  and add the user
as a Site Collection administrator for that Site Collection. Then you
will be able to gain access  to the site and add other FBA users through
the normal process by adding them to the appropriate SharePoint groups.
If you also added a Role provider then you can add groups of FBA users

But how can I add that user  as site  Collection admin  via
central admin? Is that the way thru Policy for Web Application ? I
already set  that. and I even set that user in owner group in that site
thru SiteActions link. Please tell me the way doing this.

In Central Admin > Application management tab > SharePoint Site
Management section > Site Collection Administrators link.

Giving them Full Control through a Policy for Web Application would work
