I was working with load tests in Visual Studio 2005, and wanted to create a load test reading random pages of the web site. The model used in the VS2005 load tests is scenario based, which basically means each user goes through a sequence of urls from start to end. This was not what I wanted, as this is a information system, not a process based system like a webshop. An information system has endless usage scenarios. I wanted to create a web test, where the user had to open som initial pages, and could from there go to a random page on the web site.

This entry will explain the steps you need to take, to use ADAM for both roles and membership in ASP.NET 2.0 and authorization manager.

If you set connectionProtection to "Secure" on the membership provider in your web.config you may get an error in the event log saying "8009030e No credentials are available in the security package". This is because there is no suitable certificate installed on the server that ADAM can use. This blog-entry will try to help you resolve this issue.
