Password Reset web part producing an error

Sep 29, 2011 at 2:45 PM

The web part takes the user ID and then I'm presented with the challenge question.

Upon entering an answer to the challenge question and hitting the "Submit" button I get an error. This error appears regardless of whether or not I've entered the correct response to the challenge question. I followed the correlation error into the ULS and find the following:

09/29/2011 10:39:41.99 w3wp.exe (0x0704) 0x0CDC SharePoint Foundation General 8nca Verbose Application error when access /Lists/Membership/AllItems.aspx, Error=Membership provider does not support password retrieval or reset.   at System.Web.UI.WebControls.PasswordRecovery.AttemptSendPasswordQuestionView()     at System.Web.UI.WebControls.PasswordRecovery.OnBubbleEvent(Object source, EventArgs e)     at System.Web.UI.Control.RaiseBubbleEvent(Object source, EventArgs args)     at System.Web.UI.Page.RaisePostBackEvent(IPostBackEventHandler sourceControl, String eventArgument)     at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) 80ccda80-8baa-4fb2-a5b0-06ca7f304b79

Can you give me an idea of where to go to?

It's your SQLMembershipProvider configuration.  You'll have to change all web.config's where it's defined and add in:

enablePasswordReset="true"

See here for an example:

OK, I got that corrected! You were right-on, though I changed it through IIS Providers control. Thanks
