Is it possible in IIS 6 to administrate users as in IIS 7 (e.g. as described here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731783%28v=ws.10%29.aspx)?

In IIS7 you can define users within the ASP.NET group with click on .NET users and it automatically creates a ms sql server db in background in the website directory.

So far I didn't found anything about the issue, most forum questions are about how to migrate asp.net sites from IIS6 to IIS7.

  • Ok it seems to me that this is a specific IIS 7 feature. Would be glad if someone could confirm that. thx – Bernhard Aug 30 '12 at 7:34

In Short: No, IIS 6 does not contain the built-in resource for managing users like IIS7+ do. Have to remember that IIS6 came out well before ASP.NET and especially the membership providers took hold back in the .NET 1.1 and 2.0 days.

However: .NET ships with a web-based configuration tool that you can probably use and I would imagine there may be some open source tools over on CodePlex that may provide an even better interface to deal with the ASP.NET Membership Provider.
