Default session_onend does not trigger


I hope you'll pardon my english ... french is my first language.

I'm experiencing some problems with session_onend on a particular server recently installed. For some reason the call to the session_onend sub seems never to occur on the new web server. I've downloaded a little script I've found on http://www.asp101.com/articles/john/...essionsend.zip written by John Peterson and it worked fine one 2 or 3 servers I've tested it onto (all servers are configured identically as far as I know).

I've added a line in the session.asp page as :

<p><a href="sessionend.asp">Click here to end session.</a></p>

And created the page sessionend.asp :

<%@ Language="VBScript" EnableSessionState="True" %>



So on a normal server I get something like this in session.log :

Session: 358709378 started at 2007-03-16 10:40:33
Session: 358709378 ended at 2007-03-16 10:40:34
Session: 358709379 started at 2007-03-16 10:40:34
Session: 358709379 ended at 2007-03-16 10:42:30

But the new server only triggers session_onstart and my log looks like this :

Session: 353253007 started at 2007-03-16 10:33:44
Session: 353253008 started at 2007-03-16 10:33:45
Session: 353253009 started at 2007-03-16 10:33:46

Any clue ?

Seems like there was a difference ... Windows server 2003 R2 SP2 was installed on the new server. It worked fine after uninstalling it. I tried to install SP2 on an other server and session_onend stopped working on it.

thx all.
