Referencing the Machine Config file

P: n/a
Hi

We are running cms 2002, Framework 1.0 with Visual studio 2002. We
have just upgraded to Framework 1.1 and visual studio 2003.

All of our database connection strings are stored within the machine
config, this was necessary as our web site has 4 environments and the
database server has a different name in each.

Since the upgrade the applications can't read the strings in the
machine config (previously it was fine). If I copy the strings into
the web config the apps are fine but this is not practical as it would
involve a different web config on each machine (Could be easy to mess
up)

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated

Mikey,

Can you give us some indication as to what happens when you run your code?
Be as specific as possible.

I'm having a similar problem. I have an ASP.NET web app compiled against
Framework 1.1 and deployed. When we update the server to use 1.1 SP1 we can
no longer read from the machine.config, only web.config. It appears to be
fine if we recompile against 1.1 SP1, but being in a production environment,
this isn't an option.

The simplest steps for use to reproduce, just adds this code to our .aspx
start-up page
TestValue=<%=System.Configuration.ConfigurationSet tings.AppSettings["TestKey"]%>

The resultant page just has "TestValue="
The machine.config has the following:
<appSettings>
<add key="TestKey" value="TestValue" />
</appSettings>

Again, if we put this in the web.config, we get the value properly
("TestValue=TestValue")

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Did you place the <appSettings> element BELOW the <configSections> section
in the machine.config? You should.

Yes. Remember I said it all works fine if I compile the web app against
Framework 1.1 SP1 with no other changes.

Jim, hope I didn't offend you with my comment.

In any case, we've had an unsatisfying resolution to this problem. We
created a new web site in a vroot that just read from machine.config. When we
installed this, it worked. We created another vroot to point back to the
original root dir that was having the problems, and it worked. We then tried
to go directly to the root again and it worked. The machine hadn't been
rebooted and we had done several iisresets previously.

I don't see how creating the new vroot could have resolved it. So, it
remains a mystery to us.

Thanks for your help.

Dave,

No offense at all. I've been out of the office for about a week and just
haven't responded to any posts.

I suspect that what you're seeing here is some metabase corruption in IIS.
