Oracle membership

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have an application in ASP and oracle 10g release 2, but now i want to migrate it to ASP.NET, i have been researching about oracle membership to create the autentication module first, but i am soo confused with some topics

1. In my develop machine i already installed oracle, do i have to install this client even on the production server ???

2. how can i run the SQL scripts whitout Oracle developer tools for visual Studio ??

3. does the client generate any problem with my actual database, because both are diferent versions.

i will appreciate any help.

Default Membership tables for Oracle

Is there a way to create the required Membership tables/SPs for Oracle? Just what aspnet_regsql does. Something like aspnet_regORACLE :). Thanks in advance.

Multiple membership providers



In my web.config I have:

        <add name="ADProvider1"
        <add name="ADProvider2"

If I just have ADProvider1 it works, when I add ADProvider2, even though for testing I only use ADProvider1 I get an error: "Unable to establish secure connection with the server"

Am I adding the second provider to the membership section incorrectly?



Replacement options for Membership


Hi everyone,
     I tried to use Microsoft's Membership option for signing up new users and authenticating them on subsequent pages, but it has not worked very well. The biggest issue has been with the REMEMBER ME function. With this checked, I am randomly logged out in the middle of some functions and some pages always show me as not authenticated, while others properly show me as authenticated. I built a site based on VB.
I was wondering what other people are using ro register users and monitor authentication and also if anyone has had better experiences with other solutions.

Pass ASP.NET membership identity object across domain?


I am trying to figure a way to SSO with ASP.NET membership and role model.

I can implement custom membership provider which consume web services hosting on a server.

With encryption of data. No problem.

But my question is, If I sign on a website with my provider, got my identity object on that application,

could I pass it to another website on another domain which use the same provider and by doing so, do not need to login again?

If this is possible, I am going to implement this solution. Please tell me what's your take on this.

Membership Search user


Is there a membership function to search a username Like this:   LIKE '%UserName%' ?

This is not working.

MembershipUser User = Membership.GetUser("%" + TextBox1.Text + "%");

Thank you.

Membership Provider Conn String


Hello. I've bee successfully using the Asp.Net Membership Provider in my VB.Net 3.5/SQL 2005 web app for a year now (Site A). However, I've added 2 new sites (B and C) (both with their own DB) and now I see a problem. It looks like users that get created for sites B and C also get created in site A. Roles that I create for B and C only get created in A. I think it is a conn string problem.

When I created A, I adde the conn string to my machine.config (not sure why I did this or if it is even needed)...


         <add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="Data Source=VS689\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=SiteA;USER ID=sa;PASSWORD=123456"/>


                <add name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=blahblah" connectionStringName="LocalSqlS

Use Membership but bypass / disable password usage for users


I have an application that does LDAP authentication. The authentication is done on the code behind page of my Login.aspx page. Once the user passes LDAP authentication, a cookie is set and I redirect:

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserName.Text, False)

I would like to setup membership in my application and keep track of some user information. But due to company security requirements, I cannot store user passwords on my application. That must stay on the LDAP server only.

Is there a way to store users but disable password storage on the aspnet_membership table?

Membership provider for MS Access in VB


Hi all,

Over the past few weeks I've been attempting to convert the readily available C# code for the Membership Provider etc whilst working with MS Access. I'm fairly experienced with VB unlike C# and have ran AccessMembershipProvider.cs, AccessConnectionHelper.cs and so on through 3 different converters. All of which have given a varying degree of errors, all of which I've fixed, either by ever so slightly re-writing the logic or in the Cryptographic case finding a working translation.

This evening I have fixed all of the errors from all of the now converted VB files (which I was pretty pleased about as you can imagine), I then created a simple login page to test this out, added a new user to the system and tried to login to find out I'm being told the username or password is wrong.

Just to clarify, the converters all had an error or two or even more in some cases which I've bypassed but now I can't login - at all!!

Any initial suggestions?

Finally I've written reams of code over the years and am really stumped on this one, has knowone actually successfully converted these files from C# to VB and actually got it working?? I'm not looking for someone to send me there hard work but I am almost at the point of not wanting to bother with it anymore and I just can't believe that it's not out there to download

Who Goes There?: Upgrade Your Site's Authentication with the New ASP.NET 2.0 Membership API


Here Dino Esposito and Andrea Saltarello cover the plumbing of the Membership API and its inherently extensible nature, based on pluggable providers. To demonstrate the features, they take an existing ASP.NET 1.x authentication mechanism and port it to ASP.NET 2.0, exposing the legacy authentication mechanism through the new Membership API.

ASP.Net connect to Oracle.


 We have an application which uses  'System.Data.OracleClient'. On the box it was developed we can change the TNSNAMES.ORA entries to connect to different oracle databases. Moving the code to a  Microsoft Server 2008 box it would appear that the application ignores the TNSNAMES.ORA file. It has cached the first Oracle connection and will now work without any TNSNAMES.ORA file. Where is it getting the connection? We have set tns_admin to point at the TNSNAMES.ORA file. We can tnsping the connection OK.

access Oracle database


Pre- .Net Framework 4.0 supported using Oracle.DataAccess.Client, using Oracle.DataAccess.Types, System.Data.OracleClient, OracleDataReader, OracleConnection. What are the equivalents in .Net Framework 4.0? Does it require any download?

Thank you.

Trying to run a stored procedure from vb code with oracle data provider.



Here is my SP:

create or replace
 Open p_getuserssignon_recordset1 for
 SELECT Distinct(Userid), UserPassword, SecurityLevel, ActiveStatus
WHERE substr(UserId,1,2) <> vUid
Order By UserId;

I would like to run this SP from code and fill a gridview with the result. 

I am not sure how to go about this, as I have found several different examples, other than the one I  think I need.

I am using the oracle data provider and I have an input parameter (vUid, which will equal "zz").

First question. When filling a gridview with a result set from a stored procedure should the recordset OUT be defined as a REFCURSOR (like i did above)? 


Do you have example code as to how to execute the SP and fill a gridview?  I keep trying different variations of code i've found on the internet without any success other than getting more confused.

(I am using VS 2005, VB).

Thank you.



Linq with two databases (oracle and sql server)


i have a problem to bring the data from the oracle (external database) and the sql server together (with similar data). The linq entities are linked to each other. The structure is like different countries with different cities and so on. To display these "non original linq objects" i need to put them into entities (linked to each other). Now i add some of them to my sql database. But for every entity i must check the connection to the other objects i don't want to add and delete them (otherwise linq will add all the connected objects, even those I don't want to add). If this goes wrong the whole input-method crashes. Is there any other possibility, except from checking every single entity and removing unwanted connections, to handle this procedure?
Thanks a lot, preg

DataTable --> Oracle DB



Can someone offer advice on the below? 

I am connecting to an AR Server and pulling out data into a DataSet.  There will be 15 different DataTables within the set.  I would like to find a way to either insert the entire DataSet or each DataTable into an Oracle table.  The Oracle table has the same format as the DataTables I'm creating.

 private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                //Get Credentials
                ID = userNameTextBox.Text;
                PW = passWordTextBox.Text;

                connString = gstrConnectBaseLineStart + "UID=" + ID + ";PWD=" + PW + gstrConnectBaseLineEnd; //Connection string
                conn = new OdbcConnection(connString); //Create Connection
                conn.Open(); //Open Connection
                Console.Write("Connection Successful" + "\n");

                dataAdapter = new OdbcDataAdapter(SQL, conn);
                dataAdapter.Fill(IncidentsDataSet, "dataTableTest");

                DataTable dataTable = new DataTable();
                dataTable = IncidentsDataSet.Tables["dataTableTest"];

                dataGridView1.DataSource = dataTable;

                //Would like to create som

How do I prevent displaying membership of an AD group in Colleague Tracker web part?


I'm a big fan of the Colleague Tracker web part in MOSS 2007 My Sites, especially the option to show 'Membership Changes'. This is often useful in highlighting that a colleague has been added to a certain AD group.

We now want to hide the membership of certain AD groups from the colleague tracker. For example, if an AD group called 'Project X' is created, we don't want membership of the group broadcast throughout the My Sites where colleagues are tracking colleagues.

My first thought was that we could use AD to 'deny read' on the 'Project X' AD group to all SharePoint related service accounts. This does not appear to have worked, although perhaps the configuration is more complex? The best approach would seem to be to prevent the group membership data ever being imported from AD to the SSP, hence my 'deny read' approach.

Has anyone successfully implemented this, or does anyone have any better ideas?


Connecting to Oracle on 64bit OS

We have a 64-bit implementation of MOSS 2007. I recently installed the SharePoint SDK to use the Application Definition Designer to connect to Oracle. I enter the connection string and then I get this:

Attempt to load Oracle client libraries threw BadImageFormatException. The problem will occur when running in 64 bit mode with the 32 bit Oracle client components installed.

I have verified that the server contains the 64 bit version of the Oracle client installed both with the instantclient and with system.data.oracleclient.dll. The only thing I can think of is that the tool was compiled as a 32bit application.  Is there a 64bit version available? Is there something else that I'm missing?
