ASP.Net SQL Server Registration Tool & Session State

The ASP.NET SQL Server Registration tool is used to create a Microsoft SQL Server database for use by the SQL Server providers in ASP.NET, or to add or remove options from an existing database. The tool can be found @ Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\VERSION\aspnet_regsql.exe.

Run the executable without arguments to load the wizard, then use the wizard to create or modify database elements for the membership, role management, profile, web parts personalization, and health monitoring features.

SQL Session State (ASPState)

ASP.Net Session State supports several different storage options for session data. To make use of SQL Server Session State you'll need to create the ASPState database on your SQL server instance; but this database isn't created by the aspnet_regsql wizard. Instead you'll need to run the executable with additional arguments. Use MSDN for a full list of arguments available, below is the minimum you'll need to get it installed.

aspnet_regsql.exe -ssadd -S {SERVER} -U {USER} -P {PASSWORD}

The -ssadd command-line option == add the session state database
