I am trying to enable password retrieval using the AD Membership
Provider with Windows Server 2003 as my AD machine. I have followed
the examples out there and have been able to update the AD schema with
the 5 new attributes and add them to the User class. However, when
trying to run the website I get errors that the following three
attributes are not part of the user class, but they really are. I have
had this problem on 2 seperate machines. The strange thing is that it
does not give me the error on the other 2 attributes that I have added
(passwordQuestion and passwordAnswer).
I read somewhere that the ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider hard-codes
the schema, which would make it pretty much useless to anyone not using
the standard schema. I cannot believe this though because the example
from MSDN on configuring password retrieval instructs you to add
attributes and then reference them in the web.config file, so I don't
really buy this explanation of the problem.
Can anyone help me to shed some light on this issue, it is driving me
