Hi,Is this what are you looking for  ? http://blogs.technet.com/b/mahesm/archive/2010/04/07/configure-forms-based-authentication-fba-with-sharepoint-2010.aspxhttp://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2009/11/05/configuring-forms-based-authentication-in-sharepoint-2010.aspx Regards.Shafaquat Ali.

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  

Hi Arun Kumar, Below the grayed out “Form” authentication type, is there a message with a link about how to enable Forms based  Authentication in claims mode? You should perform the following PowerShell script to convert the existing web  application to claim  based authentication. $w = Get-SPWebApplication “http:///”$w.UseClaimsAuthentication = 1$w.Update()$w.ProvisionGlobally() For more details, please refer to:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee806890.aspxhttp://www.chakkaradeep.com/post/FBA-in-SharePoint-2010-requires-claims-mode.aspx Thanks & Regards.
