Trying to impliment a HA solution, and stick sessions is not an option. As such I’ve setup a session state server and have tried to point the squaredup iis application to that. The problem is when I do that it breaks squaredup. I change it back to “In Process” and it comes back to life.

  1. Set machine key to be the same on both servers instead of auto generation.
  2. On a seperate server enabled the “ASP.NET State Service” to autostart and started the service
  3. On the same seperate server changed the registry key value that’s needed from 0 to 1 and I can see it now listening on the port listed in the regitry key (netstat -a)
  4. Set the Session State to “Session Server” and pointed it to the session server mentioned above by IP and Port.

Is there something I’m missing?
