Sharing Session Between 2 Web Application

The Session State server is not running for that purpose. It is designed to provide a separation of state from the worker process, and can thus be used for things like web gardens/farms and for some degree (albeit lightweight) of fault tolerance.

Each application receives its own store in the state server, and state cannot be shared between applications this way. The only thing wrong with the code is that you are attempting to use the state server for something that it's not designed to do.

If you want to share data between applications, I'd recommend that you use a database.

Access Denied Running STSADM in Window Server 2008

if you who are running Windows Server 2008 and are getting "Access Denied" errors when trying to run any command in STSADM.

  • Make sure you're running the command prompt as an administrator (Right click command prompt in the start menu and select "Run as Administrator..."
  • Make sure the username you're running under is set as farm administrator as well as a local administrator on the server.
  • Make sure User Account Control is switched off (Control Panel > User Accounts). This is only really necessary if the above didn't work.
There was also a bug in older builds of MOSS 2007 (and possibly WSS 3.0?) that under specific conditions would cause Access Denied errors when running certain STSADM operation such as "import". These can be fixed by patching to SP2.
