Could not find stored procedure 'dbo.aspnet_CheckSchemaVersion'


I am using to host my site. The SQL Database/membership system works perfectly on my local computer, but when uploaded to the server it doesn't work. I've followed all steps correctly. And I have contacted support for my service but it's been over 2weeks and no reply.

I keep getting this error when i try to login or register a new user on my membership page on my site.

Server Error in '/' Application.

Thank you all

Did you run aspnet_regsql.exe against's sql server?

aspnet_regsql.exe -S DBServerName -U DBLogin -P DBPassword -A all -d DBName

If you don't know where to run above command then you can simply run 'aspnet_regsql.exe' executable file.

In order to locate this file open your RUN Command Box by pressing Windows Key + r and put below command in that %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319 and Hit enter then find 'aspnet_regsql.exe' file. It will open a wizard that you can follow to resolve this error.

This error mostly occurs when you didn't enabled Roles in your mvc project At starting before aspnet identity table automatically created.

You will need to make sure you run this so that the tables and objects are created on's SQL server.

Open visual studio command prompt from the Visual studio tools folder from the start menu and type aspnet_regsql

and follow the wizard to register the database for membership and role providers.

I've seen this before. The database you are using doesn't have the required database elements for the membership, role management and profile features. So you've got a couple of options:

  1. Copy across the tables, stored procedures & views from your local SQL Server using SQL Management Studio or a similar application
  2. Use the aspnet_regsql.exe tool to install the scripts from anew as per the instructions in this post (I don't believe you can use the tool against a remote database if it's locked down. So you'll have to export the scripts and run them manually)

I have the same problem- i copy/paste connectionString from SQL Object manager in Visual Studio and forget to type Initial Catalog=YourDatabaseName.

Check the schema the stored procedure belongs to on your host - it could be that it's not in the "dbo" schema.

e.g. if it's within SomeOtherSchema, your call would need to be "SomeOtherSchema.aspnet_CheckSchemaVersion"

I had the exact same error when I had enabled <roleManager> believing I was enabling ASP.NET Identity 2. They are not the same! The <roleManager> enabled an old version of identity management which uses a different table structure to ASP.NET Identity 2 (which doesn't need "enabling" by the way - it's just there).

If you are intentionally using the old role-manager and still getting the error you might be looking at the default localdb instead of your database, in which case you can modify <roleManager> to point at any connection string you want:

             type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider" />


If you are are after using ASP.NET Identity 2, here's an article on it:

In short you should recompile the aspnet provider dll using the sql username you were assigned from your hosting.

  • Download the
  • Replace from the source code all the references to dbo with your hosting database username
  • Compile (you need Visual Studio) and place the ProviderToolkitSampleProviders.dll in the Bin folder
  • In your web.config replace the "type" attribute of every line with “Microsoft.Samples., ProviderToolkitSampleProviders”
  • Replace in you local sql server all dbo references with your hosting database username
  • Export the sql object creation script and run them on the remote database
  • Copy the records from your local sql table aspnet_SchemaVersions to the remote database

Another option, pheraps simpler to try, is to replace the dbo references in your local sql server database with your hosting database username, then upload and attach your mdf file.

Hope it helps

The simplest solution is to add to the web.config file

          <remove name="RoleManager" />
