I am trying to set up the asp.net state service on a multiprocessor service in order avoid the possibility of another session being created if a different processor were to handle a user request.

The only thing I can find on the actual set up is that i simply need to enable to ASP.NET Session Service.  Is that all there is to it ?

Using the session service will allow unique sessions to work on multiple systems.  If you followed Microsofts setups recommendations that is all there is too it.

All the MS docs said was to enable the service.
It just seems too easy.  No IIS config, no changes to the code.

I was hoping to find someone that is actually using this service and could verify that indeed all you need to do is turn on the service.

I can confirm that it's easy to do from experience.  However, you do have to make a change to your web.config for any web applications that use it.  ASP.NET web applications will only use the service if configured to do so.  In fact, IIS can use multiple ASP.NET web applications that use either memory, the service OR SQL.

This page shows you how to configure the web.config for any of them: http://www.codersource.net/asp_net_web_configuration_file.html
