We (out IT partner really) recently changed some DNS for a web farmed site we have so that the two production server have round-robin DNS switching between the two. Prior to this switch we didn't really have problems with WebResource.axd files. Since the switch, when we hit the live public URL, we get an error:
Padding is invalid and cannot be removed.
When we hit the specific servers themselves, they load fine. I've researched the issue and it seems since they're sharing assets between two servers, we need to have a consistent machineKey in the web.config for each server so they can encrypt and decrypt consistently between the two. My questions are:
Can I generate a machineKey via a tool on the server, or do I need to write code to do this?
Do I just need to add the machineKey to the web.config on each server or do you think I'll need to do anything else to make the two server work together? (Both web.config's currently do not have a machineKey)
So i have the global.asx file that I want to call a piece of code when the session end. How do I configure web.config so that when the session is end/times out it goes to that global.asx sessioN_end function?
I am working on a project where we want to provide link to download excel file.We are using NLB for load balancing,NLB cluster contains 3 machines.constraint is that excel file to be downloaded is available on a single machine.How to ensure that HTTP request underneath will served from the same mahine?
I have an asp.net application running on a web farm that allows users to upload files and download them later via link to that file. Currently, I use Windows DFS to replicate the local IIS directory where the files are stored across the web farm servers. However, as this solution does not scale out, I want to implement a more scalable solution by partitioning the documents. Specifically, say I set up multiple file storage servers (Fs1, Fs2, Fs3, etc.) on the network. Further, let's say I change my upload page to save the uploaded file to one of the file storage servers on the local LAN (based on some logic). I assume so far I am safe with ASP.NET doing this much assuming I have the correct permission for the ASP.NET process ID. The question I have is withregards to download links. When a user gets served a download link to their document (e.g. http://www.testco.com/data/doc1.txt) is there a way for me to "intercept" that HTTP request and underneath the coversserve the doc1.txt from the file storage server (e.g. Fs2) it resides
I am writing an app that has a bit of process flow to it. On the save of a record, I need to check some fields to make sure they are not null. If they are not null, I will update a 'SectionComplete' field to true.
The thing is, I would like to store my fields in the web.config. So, I would like to have a string in the appsettings section that has a list of field names that are required. Then in my method, I would call these fields out and check each one for the specific record id, and then update the database.
I would like to do this in the web.config so we could add/remove columns without having to redeploy.
For example: my required fields are name, id, and phone. For section one to be labeled complete, all of these fields would need to be not null.
Currently, I work on an ASP.NET project which is hosted under version control and is used on several developer machines, tester machine and production environment.
In three cases, configuration (Web.config) may be different. For example, developer and tester environments use testing SQL Server, whereas in production environment, another SQL Server is accessed, so the connection string is different in those cases.
We want to keep three versions of Web.config in subversion. But modifying each of three files every time we need to add, remove or change a common setting is annoying: it would be nice to have a common, master Web.config, which will be inherited by each of the three Web.config files.
How to set up an ASP.NET project which will use a master configuration file and different slave configuration files on different machines, thus sharing the same project/source code/configuration files in subversion?
When I open my ASP.NET site in IIS and try to open the .NET Trust Levels, I get an error message:
.NET Trust Levels There was an error while performing this operation.
Details: Filename: ?C:inetpubwwwrootmyappweb.config Line number: 445
Error: This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"),or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false".
I've checked a few places, but I haven't found anything that seems like it would be locking that setting. Is there a systematic way of determining where that setting is locked?
I am running IIS 6.0 on an XP OS using VS 2008 and SQL Server 2008 (Full install). I developed two web apps. Both of these I can run from IIS by setting them to the default website. However, now I tried adding an index.htm file. Real simple; all it has is two hyperlinks to these web apps. But now only the first web app works. The first web app is pure VS. The second web app modifies an Adventureworks database table.
But now when I click the hyperlink for the second web app, it gives me the error below. However this error doesn't make sense to me cause I have the two web apps configured as two virtual directories beneath C:inetpub and the index.htm file is also beneath C:inetpub. And the default website is set to home directory C:inetpub with Document index.htm on top. Also, why does the first web app work and not the second now? Server Error in '/AddFileToSQL' Application. The path '/AddFileToSQL/App_GlobalResources/' maps to a directory outside this application, which is not supported.

I just purchased a premium Windows hosting account from 1&1. I wish to host my site on there. I have been working on it for quite some time.
The most important part of my website is Authentication, and I cannot get my database to work.
I need to get my site to be able to connect to E:BlahBlahBlahApp_DataASPNETDB.mdf. It is SQL Server 2005. And yes, my hosting package supports it. I have a database set up. Would I need to configure my database to read the .mdf? Or is there a special connection string for files.
It is known that we use web.config file to override the setting of machine.config file.
a) how come machine.config file knows that only changes made in web.config file are to be overwritten. I mean to say, if I use some other name for the config file say xyz.config, will it be able to work?
b) How does machine.config file know about web.config? Is there any link mentioned inside the machine.config file for that?
I am trying to create a new report using the PUSH MODEL to supply data. I am creating a DataTable in my C# code and pushing this to a report using a templateI have created a report template and an XSD (using DataSet.WriteXmlSchema) and added this to my report using the Database Expert option. I have since deleted the xsd schema but the report still seems to be working.I was wondering why this was happening. Is the xsd file stored in the report?
