IIS Role manager help needed please - July 17, 2012, 10:57 AM

If anyone has a few minutes I could really use some help.

I find myself having to support a customer's IIS site... A user can't get in and I need to change her password. The guys that wrote the system did not provide any password recovery.

I have google searched and clicked on every damned thing I can find in Server Manager and IIS Manager and can't find USERS !!! Everything that would show a user list is EMPTY except that I KNOW they are there somewhere !!!!!!

How the HELL do I change the password for an user in IIS Role Manager ???

Sorry to ask here but I know there are bunches of MS admins on here.

Thanks!

Maybe I'm missing something... But shouldn't it be in ad users and computers?

What authentication type is used for this iis site?

I was thinking the exact same thing. Just add her to the IIS security group.


Could be wrong but it's what I would try first.

First.. THANK YOU for any responses..

Here's what I know...

There are about 30 or 40 web users of the IIS application..
For authentication all I know is that its using Role Provider in ASP.NET

I haven't used this before and so I'm trying to figure out where the hell the users are listed and their passwords defined (or reset them).

Damn, was going to put up some screen caps but I can't attach..

Anyway.. I tried IIS manager and System Manager and I can NOT find a list of the known users anywhere. It is a standalone system on the web and should not be part of any network based permissions scheme.

lol.. WHY is this so hard to find? ANNOYING !!!!!!

If asp.net, then it's all in the database I think, but it will be encrypted so no direct way to edit. Whoever build the application should have included some sort of resetting

lol.. wow..
Do I really HAVE to write special code to change a password?
There is no kind of user interface that allows me to do it?
This blows..

Anyway, thanks for the help.
I would have studied it for hour upon hour, or maybe days longer trying to find a way to do it to no avail. I'll just go ahead and write the code.

Yeah, I guess They assume that password changing functions will be a necessary part.

Try those methods they mentioned. Should be an easy hack

Just out of curiosity, is this a shitpoint site with forms based authentication, or a completely custom web app?

Also, asp.net forms based authentication has some powershell cmdlets relate to the membership provider. What providers are listed in IIS for that site?

first is the account in active directory? if yes, change through active directory computers/users.

If no, is the account under computer management users and groups? if so, locate the account under users and change pw for account via right mouse click.

Is the account mapped to a common account eg IIS_default, then her account could be listed under advanced options for IIS in the authentication area. you might need the add-on to view the advanced properties.. fucking love microsoft.

If it is in the database, then you need someone who knows SQL/oracle well enough to find the account in the database. and then possibly you can change it w/in the database manager or as others have suggested check the code to see the account setup feature..

Did you read the thread? He isn't using windows authentication. Asp.net authentication is completely separate from any form of windows authentication. It will be listed as a provider in IIS, but the users account info won't be there

Also, you can't change passwords for asp.net web apps in the db directly

what i read was that he didnt know wtf he was doing, so i put that in just in case.

i was more focused on the account mapping to the anon account, or an account that was created for the role...

you have to install the add on for the account mapping stuff. this is also where you do pki authentication.

in IIS under server components, you can add on "configuration editor" which is not installed by default. it lets you look at the IIS config file a lot easier to configure PKI mapping, authentication, as well as user mapping to a default windows account.

instead of creating an account that users know on the server/AD, you can create ones in the db that map to the windows account... pretty handy. the CAC auth is a PIA, but the editor helps.

Right but he's already said he's using .net as the provider. An that there aren't windows accounts...
