Hi,

You can either generate the machine key from the server having IIS8 from below URL and add this in your webconfig file :

Thanks Chanderpal,

I am wondering , What happens if I just leave the machine key as it is without changing it.

If I just copy the web .config as it is. Since the machine key was generated for the old server, do you think it will break something

Thanks
