If the SimpleMembershipProvider class has been initialized using a call to the WebSecurity::InitializeDatabaseConnection() method, this method is not supported and will throw a NotSupportedException exception. However, if the WebSecurity::InitializeDatabaseConnection() method has not been called, and if you have configured your site to use the standard ASP.NET membership provider, this method is passed through to the standard membership provider.
