If we have a web application created and want to enable Claims authentication on the site, we can do it with a Power Shell command.
$objWeb = Get-SPWebApplication http://MyWebApp
Now you can goto the Zone settings of the Web Application via Central Administration and can configure Membership provider and Role provider by enabling FBA on the site.
Set the UseClaimsAuthentication to zero if if needs to be disabled.

When working with the People Picker in Central Admin to set permissions for Secure Store / BCS occationally we might encounter this error.
One of the Possible reasons could be because we have a custom Claims based authentication Provider (FBA Provider) configured in the site (Central administration site) – Check Memberships / Providers entry in CA web.config / PeoplePickerWildcards entry in CA web.config. See the event logs to narrow down to the root cause which is causing the issue, Possibly some of the methods from Base membership provider class which are not overridden / Exceptions in the code.
Another possible reason could be – AAM (Alternate access mapping). Make sure AAM is configured properly for the CENTRAL ADMIN site, as that is where from we are tyring to setup the permissions. So if CA site url is http://myserver:12345 and if you are trying to access it outside with FQDN like http://myserver.mydomain.com:12345 make sure AAM is configured for FQDN
Hope this helps.
