I am troubleshooting an error message that occurs on a Load Balanced MOSS 2007 site, "This Web Part Page has been modified since you opened it". I have read the KB Article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/892348 and verified the settings are correct. I receive the error even when the IIS logs show that I only reached one of the two front end web servers.

We have not determined steps that cause the error every time, but it ocurrs occasionally under the following scenario.

  1. Navigate to a list
  2. Create a new item
  3. Hit OK
  4. Error occurs on the refresh of NewForm.aspx

I am also getting the same error. It started when I set up Load Balancing on my MOSS 2007 site. The administrator's book reccommended setting affinity mode to none, so I did. Now I cannot change it because I'm not a domain admin. Does anyone know why the reccomend setting affinity to none and what the significance of this is

Affinity should always be set to single with SharePoint if you are using Windows NLB. Some of the other load balancing products call it persistance or sticky sessions. Whatever you call is SharePoint needs it.

HI Shane,

Do you know of any documentation that specifies this I have recently set up a SharePoint Farm and have introduced load balancing (using F5 BIG-IP LTM) and nowhere have I read that persistence (or affinity) is needed.

If it is indeed mandatory, is there anything that needs setting on the SharePoint servers themselves, or is it all handled by whichever load-balancing method you use

Thanks,

TK

Someone asked for the proof the other day and I couldn't find it then either. Sorry but I am 100% positive! Nothing needs done in SharePoint though, should all be handled by your device.
