We have configured Form Based authentication on a SharePoint 2010 claims based site and is working fine.
However timer job account is running under "Claims based user" rather than the actual ""set up account". in other words timer job is running under ” i:0#.w|dev\"setuplogin” instead of “dev\setuplogin”. Which is creating access denied error
("because the current user is not a Farm Administrator" ).
I resoled this issue by removing and adding the user again in services. initially the user was shown as dev\mylogin and it was not working. after i removed the user and addded again it was showing as firstname.lastname@example.org . so i presume its taking the correcct user now.
