Issue reading user roles when using forms login with AD

Hi All,

I'm trying to setup an intranet that restricts access based off of user roles.  At first I setup windows authentication using the windows token role provider.  In order to test this, I made a page that would list all the active directory groups the logged in user was part of in a drop down menu called RoleList.  The code behind for this is below:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string[] roleNames;
        roleNames = Roles.GetRolesForUser();

        foreach (string roleName in roleNames)

The above code works great.  I'm now trying to change the authentication from windows to forms (still using the active directory as the membership provider).  I've successfully setup the login, but now I get the following error when I try to use Roles.GetRolesForUser():

"Method is only supported if the user name parameter matches the user name in the current Windows Identity."

It looks like while I'm able to authenticate using the active directory, the login name for the session is stored differently, so it's getting an error when trying to look up the groups.  I'm using sAMAccountName for the attributeMapUsername property, and when I view the login name I get the following based on authentication type:

Windows authentication: OMNI-GUIDE\temp
Forms authentication: temp

Anyone know how to get around this?  I can supply the web.config info if it will be helpful.  Thanks for the help!

Using AD/Forms-Authentication, using "User"-Objects in database-relations
Hello,I couldn't think of a better subject, sorry. I want to write an application in which users are allowed to do for instance postings and other kind of stuff. Every post is linked to exactly one user.At the moment I want to use forms authentication using the SqlMembershipProvider but perhaps in the future this will change to windows authentication with the ADMembershipProvider. Therefore I am not sure what to do about these "User"-objects. Should I create my own UserTable with a primary key "UserName" and link this (not inside the database) to the MembershipProvider's username? I tried to...

Any security issues using Impersonation along with Forms Authentication with Integrated Security (SQL SERVER 2000)?
I currently running a ASP.NET application (Visual studio 2003) with SQL Server 2000. For security I am using forms authentication and integrity security for sql server enabling the ASP.NET account. I am developing a module that create, delete and upload files on  a network directory. If I set impersonation in the web config to true and specify a username/password  will that conflict with my current security? Would it be better to make impersonation specific to this page? Any ideas on the approach?  Thanks    ...

Security/User Roles Issue
Anyone having issues with the Portal Starter Kit security model? I've run into several different scenarios where the PortalSecurity.IsInRole method doesn't seem to be doing what it's advertised to do. I'm not looking for anything specific here, though I do have pointed failure examples if anyone is interested. More than anything, I was hoping to commiserate with someone else in the interest of potentially solving what appears to be an endemic "Portal Problem." Thanks, D-...

Any way in IIS 6.0 to secure a directory using a database with logins without using Forms Authentication and Mapping?
I need to protect all files in a directory on a web server. My users have a desktop application they use to connect to the server and look for updates. I had implemented Forms authentication for the directory I'm protecting and included wildcard mapping in IIS. This works very well for when someone tries to access the updates via a web browser. But, the desktop application crashes out because when it accesses that directory, the RedirectURL from the forms authentication won't work. The application doesn't know to open a web browser and ask for authentication.  I may...

using AD for users to login to workstations
we've kept clear of AD until now, but with Windows Vista desktops eminent it looks like we may have to deploy AD for users to login to desktops. I'm hesitant as I know nothing of AD - if we're just using this for users to authenticate to workstations... does this require PDC and BDC and MS DNS and all the other junk I've been hearing?
