Thanks Shafaquat for your reply… but…the requirement is of upgrading a classic based web app to the Claim based web app. normally in beta we used to create a web app using claim base or classic based both supported FBA but in RTM only Claim based supports FBA so need to convert Classic Based Authentication to Claim Based Authentication of FBA configuration. Need to know how to change Classic based Authentication to Claim Based Authentication in SharePoint Server 2010 RTM. Thanks and Regards,Arun Kumar
