I  am maintaining more than 40 windows 7 machines in my network. I did some mistakes in  the machine.config file, Now I need to fix this issue. Now I found the mistake and fixed in one machine. Can I replace the same  machine.config file in all the machines? Does all the windows 7 machines has same values in the machine.config file ?

Hi Varshini,
If all machines are 64 bit or 32 bit and if the .NET framework is the same in all machines, then I do not see any harm in replacing the machine.config file to see if the problem gets resolved. I would take back of the existing (problematic file in which you did the change), and do a compare using tool like beyond compare or windiff to see what are the major differences before replacing them.

Thanks,
Karrtik
