ASP.NET Authentication using WCF Authentication Service returns “AuthenticationService is Disabled”

I recently deployed a solution I was working on that used ASP.NET Authentication via the WCF Authentication Service.  When I called the service it returned a fault exception that read:

AuthenticationService is Disabled

I could not figure out why.  What happened was my web.config on the server was lacking the following entry to enable the service:

      <authenticationService enabled="true"/> 

I hope this helps solve your problem.
