Creating ASP.NET membership and authentication tables in SQL Server (Aspnet_regsql.exe)

There is a little command line tool that can create the standard ASP.NET membership and authentication tables in an existing SQL Server database instance. (Since I seem to have a hard time remembering the name of the tool I’d figure I’d write a little blurp on my blog to act as a reminder Smile ).

Aspnet_regsql.exe is a command line tool. You can run it without parameters to have it help you in via wizard mode, or apply the right parameters and do it commando-style. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms229862.aspx for available parameters.

And if you want to enable the ASP.NET Web Administration Tool on a test or production server, then this forum post http://forums.asp.net/t/932674.aspx/1 tells you how to do that.
