How can I create an IIS provider for SQL Server?

I have a backup (failover) server that is missing a provider in IIS. I have all the provider parameters except the type.  I know the type for the Provider should be MS SQL server, but there must be some specific systax I should use for this to work.  See attached images.

IIS Web Site Properties and ASP.NET SettingsThis image is of the Properties of my web site in IIS.  On the APS.NET tab I click 'Edit Coonfiguration..' which open the ASP.NET Configuration Settings.  Within this window I click 'Authentication' tab.  About the middle of the window is a button 'Manage Providers'.

IIS Authentication Provider SettingsWhen I click 'Manage Providers' a new window opens for 'Provider Settings'. I need to create a new Provider so I click 'Add Provider' and I am prompted for the 'Provider name' and 'Provider Type'  The problem I have is that I don't know the correct systax to refer to the SQL Server for the Provider Type field.  What is the correct syntax for valid values for the Provider Type?

Any help is appreciated.

Maybe this will help.

What your looking at is really a GUI into the web.config file. You should be able to enter a provider name of your choice and put System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider as the type.

Thank You Both, I had spent over a month trying to resolve this issue. Looking at service accounts, SharePoint Central configurations and IIS etc. Ultimately the key phrase that helped me focus my efforts was 'What your looking at is really a GUI into the web.config file.'  

Thank You for your help!
