HttpException with no details...

P: n/a
I have an ASP.NET 1.1 app running on a set of load balanced servers. I am
using Forms authentication. Periodically I am getting the exception below,
I'm catching it in my Application_Error() override. The problem is the
exception doesn't have much info to go on. No details at all. I suspect it
has something to do with the app being in a load balanced setup but I'm not
sure what's causing it. I have changed the machineKey on both load balanced
servers to be the same per KB312906. I even went so far as to remove all
use of Session[] variables. The problem is VERY sporadic. I can be using
the app for many minutes then all of a sudden I get this exception. I've
even seen it trying to view the trace.axd file. There must be somthing
basic I am missing here.

Is there anything else I need to do to make my app work well in a load
balanced situation?

What else might be causing this?

Hi Brett,

It seems the problem is thrown from System.Web.Handlers.TraceHandler. If
you disable the ASP.NET application's trace, will this help? Addttionally,
when you got the exception, what can you find from the HttpException's
Properties, like ErrorCode, InnerException, Message and Source?
