I have recently started monitoring error emails related to a web app that I test.
The error below, is a new one for me, and I am looking for ways that I can test on what impact, if any this may be having on the users of that app.
## Unable to make the session state request to the session state server. Please ensure that the ASP.NET
State service is started and that the client and server ports are the same. If the server is on a remote
machine, please ensure that it accepts remote requests by checking the value of
\AllowRemoteConnection. If the server is on the local machine, and if the before mentioned registry
value does not exist or is set to 0, then the state server connection string must use either ‘localhost’ or
‘127.0.0.1’ as the server name.
The error was happening intermittently but has become more common recently.
I noticed the error happening while I was monitoring, so I did some tests through the front end to see if there would be any noticeable problems when exercising the functionality the way an end-user would.
Tips for tests or tools to narrow to determine that would be appreciated.
