Originally I had used a different method for setting anonymous access and under that method I was able to setup two FBA accounts with different rights and everything worked. I ran into several deal-breaker issues with the first method, and then blissfully
I found your method mentioned above (thanks for that too!) and that solved my issues. It was after starting a new site collection and following your blog post that I first noticed the Change Password issue. Everything else works perfectly!
Let me list out the steps:
- User visits front page of site (anon) and that includes a link to the Membership Request page
- User completes request, email sends fine
- Admin views FBA request, approves User
- User gets email as shown below, clicks link
- Link takes user to "Change Password" page, which has blank web part
- User tries clicking "Sign In", takes them to log-in page
- User selects "Forms Based.." and enters username and temp password
- Error above displays.
So the be clear - the change password page never actually throws an error, that happens only on the default log-in page when using a temp password.
This is the email:
Your request for an account on <agency> SharePoint 2010 Portal has been approved and you have been granted access.
Your user name is: <username>
Your temporary password is: <temp pwd>
Your temporary password can be changed immediately by logging onto the
Change Password Page using your user name and temporary password.
The ChangePassword page is located at
Once you have changed your password, you can browse the <agency> SharePoint 2010 Portal site at <web address>
If you need additional access please contact the site administrator.
As far as URL rewriting, it is not installed on the server, and my Googling has not
yielded any results on where to configure or disable that if not listed in IIS or Services. Thanks so much for trying to help me - I really appreciate everything you do to help us noobs with SP.
