ASP.NET includes a tool for installing the SQL Server database used by the SQL Server providers, named Aspnet_regsql.exe. The Aspnet_regsql.exe tool is located in the drive:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\versionNumber folder on your Web server. Aspnet_regsql.exe is used to both create the SQL Server database and add or remove options from an existing database.

You can run Aspnet_regsql.exe without any command line arguments to run a wizard that will walk you through specifying connection information for the computer running SQL Server and installing or removing the database elements for all the supported features. You can also run Aspnet_regsql.exe as a command-line tool to specify database elements for individual features to add or remove.

NoteNote
The database elements that are installed in the feature database will always be owned by the SQL Server database owner account (dbo). In order to install the feature database, a SQL Server login must be permitted to the db_ddladmin and dd_securityadmin roles for the SQL Server database. However, you do not need to be a system administrator for the SQL Server in order to install the feature database.

To run the Aspnet_regsql.exe wizard, run Aspnet_regsql.exe without any command line arguments, as shown in the following example:

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\<versionNumber>\aspnet_regsql.exe

You can also run the Aspnet_regsql.exe tool as a command-line utility. For example, the following command installs the database elements for membership and role management on the local computer running SQL Server:

aspnet_regsql.exe -E -S localhost -A mr

The following table describes the command line options supported by the Aspnet_regsql.exe tool.

-W Runs the tool in wizard mode. This is the default if no command line arguments are specified.
-C connection string The connection string to the computer running SQL Server where the database will be installed, or is already installed. This option is not necessary if you only specify the server (-S) and login (-U and -P, or -E) information.
-S server The name of the computer running SQL Server where the database will be installed, or is already installed. The server name can also include an instance name, such as .\INSTANCENAME.

In this section , we can create our security database according to our business model and store it on sql server, oracle, mysql or other.

If you have already a security database, go to the next section.

Open visual studio prompt command tool and run command line aspnet_regsql as following

aspnetbd1

The screen explain the wizard scenario  so Click next

aspnetbd2

Here we can remove existing security database or create a new one.  We want to create a new security database. So check the first option and click next

aspnetbd3

Enter our database server name .\SQLEXPRESS  ( enter the appropriate server name).  if you already an existing database, you can select it. So the wizard will create the security tables on the selected datase.

If you do not have a database, let default. the default database name that will be created is aspnetdb

aspnetbd4

The wizard dispays the summary action, so click next to confirm  and finish the action
