Problem with Membership/Roles

Hi friends,
Hi friends.

I have a website in a server and I'm using Memberships and Roles. I
needed to replicate that site in a different subdomain for development
purposes. I changed the Application Name in the new web.config to have
a separate set of users/roles in the same ASPNETDB database.
I created a simple page in wich I just add a new "Admin" role and add a user to it.
After I added this user to thes new site I'm not able to login.
I checked the ASPDBNET db and I found that the new Application is
properly created as well as the Role and the User tables have the references to the new Role ans User. The problem is that there is no record for this user in the Membership table so .Net did
not store any password or membership information at all for this user.

Any idea about why?

Please find the relevant section of the web.config attached.

Thanks in advance
<roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="MyAspNetSqlRoleProvider">
<providers>
<clear />
<add connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer"
applicationName="/showroom" name="MyAspNetSqlRoleProvider"
type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider" />
</providers>
</roleManager>
 
<membership defaultProvider="MyAspNetSqlMembershipProvider">
<providers>
<clear />
<add name="MyAspNetSqlMembershipProvider"
type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider"
minRequiredPasswordLength="5"
minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0"
requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"
enablePasswordRetrieval="true"
enablePasswordReset="true"
passwordFormat="Clear"
connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer"
applicationName="/showroom"
/>
</providers>
</membership>

Well,

I finally found the solution myself. The problem is that I was using the overloaded method of CreateUser that only requires UserName and Password and I had configured the web.config to allow password retrieval. Under this config, the email is required.
For some weir reason that makes that the user gets saved but the membership is not created.

Thanks to all of you who reviewed this question.
