I am new to using asp.net Membership Provider.  I have used the CreatedUserWizard in an app with success.  However, I cannot get the PasswordRecovery and ChangePassword controls to work.  I get the message that the attempt failed.  I have the proper settings in the web.config to allow change and recovery.  I don't know how to begin to debug this.

Thanks for your input.

Here is the code:

<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="Login.aspx" timeout="30"/>
    </authentication>
    <authorization>
      <allow users="*"/>
      <deny users="*"/>
    </authorization>
    <membership defaultProvider="SqlMembershipProvider">
      <providers>
        <clear/>
        <add name="SqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" connectionStringName="Membership" enablePasswordRetrieval="true" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="14" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" requiresUniqueEmail="false" passwordFormat="Encrypted" minRequiredPasswordLength="6" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" description="Stores and retrieves membership data from SQL Server" applicationName="SEIOnline"/>
      </providers>
    </membership>
    <roleManager enabled="true">
      <providers>
        <clear/>
        <add name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" connectionStringName="SEIConnectionString" applicationName="SEIOnline" type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"/>
      </providers>
