Description:
Installed the MySQL .NET connector (6.0.3.0) and configured the membership and role providers. Then used Website/ASP.NET Configuration/Security w/ Visual Studio 2008 to add a role. The role is successfully added to the DB, but when the Manage link is selected the following error is displayed.

Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at System.Web.Administration.WebAdminPage.CallWebAdminHelperMethod(Boolean isMembership, String methodName, Object[] parameters, Type[] paramTypes) at ASP.security_roles_managesinglerole_aspx.Page_Load() at System.Web.Util.CalliHelper.ArglessFunctionCaller(IntPtr fp, Object o) at System.Web.Util.CalliEventHandlerDelegateProxy.Callback(Object sender, EventArgs e) at System.Web.UI.Control.OnLoad(EventArgs e) at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) 

When users are added the role(s) are not available for assignment. Also, when the Manage Roles link is selected the previously entered roles are not listed. However, there is no error message.

How to repeat:
1. Install the MySQL .NET connector (6.0.3.0).
2. Create a website in VS 2008.
3. Add the connectionstring, membership, and role provider information in the web.config file.
4. Use Website/ASP.NET Configuration to display the web based managment page.
5. Select Security.
6. Select Create or Manage Roles.
7. Add a new role.
8. Select Manage Role for the newly added role.
Error above is displayed.

Suggested fix:
None

FYI, I am using this connector w/ MySQL 5.4. Is this only for MySQL 6?

I guess this is a duplicate of Bug #44414 ?

From what I see #44414 is something different.

Whoops. Went to the wrong bug report. Yes, that is the same bug.
