RDMS Upgrade to 2.2.6

We've upgraded our RDMS server software to 9.0 and one of our data sources to 2.2.6.

Now when we attempt to connect we receive an error that the datasource is unavailable. When trying to connect direclty to the web interface, the following error is displayed.

We didn't previously have to configure the connection string information. Should the port referenced below be randomly assigned? Unique per RDMS site?

Configuration ErrorDescription: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: The <sessionState> stateConnectionString is invalid. It must have the format tcpip=<server>:<port>, where <server> is either a valid IP address or a machine name using only ASCII characters, and <port> is an unsigned integer ranging from 0 to 65535.

We currently have a bug with the upgrade.

Steps to fix it:

In the console, you can explore the content of the RDMS folder using this button


In the web.config file, there is a superfluous empty setting that we must delete.

Find the sessionState section and it should simply look like this

<sessionState mode="StateServer" cookieless="false" timeout="20" />

This should resolve the issue for now, we are working on fixing the cause of the bug on our side.

Thank you very much for the quick response.

Changing the session state to "In Process" seems to have resolved the issue, as well. Will that have any effect on users across different sites?

"In Process" will work as long as you don't have a web-garden environment for you web server.

The downside with "In Process" is on recycle of IIS, the state is lost. Not the end of the world, the system will recover.
