Re: CosignIIS problems

With both IIS 5 and 6, restarting IIS will reload the filter as well as pick up any config.dll.config file changes. In IIS 5.0 stopping and restarting the web site usually unloads then reloads the IISCosign filter, too. In IIS 6.0, stopping the web site does not unload the filter... at least right away. (It seems after a certain amount of inactivity that it will, eventually, unload.) This means the filter still has exclusive write control over the log file keeping it in a 'busy' state.

Has anyone had a situation where IISCosign wouldn't load until they restarted their server? Here at U of M there was always another issue preventing the filter from loading. That is, resetting web servers has not been shown to fix a 'IICosign filter will not load' problem. Not yet anyway and it'd probably be best if we keep it that way. :)

While we're talking about the IIS filter...

Anyone ever notice that, even after stopping the web server, the
Cosign.log file is busy?  I.e., Wordpad can't open it (though Edit from a
cmd window can still get to it).  Would seem to imply that a task didn't
really quit (which then makes me wonder if restarting the web server will
really pick up a config change, or if I have to reboot the system).
