State Management Tab, ASP.NET Configuration Settings Dialog Box
The State Management tab of the ASP.NET Configuration Settings dialog box lets you manage state and page information over multiple requests for the pages in the current Web site. ASP.NET session state lets you store and retrieve values for a user account as the user navigates the different ASP.NET pages that make up a Web application. The State Management tab lets you configure how and where the values are stored.
The MMC snap-in for ASP.NET works with IIS 6.0 or earlier. The IIS 7.0 administration tool includes the functionality of the ASP.NET MMC tool. For more information, see ASP.NET and IIS Configuration.
The settings that you make on the State Management tab apply to the Web site that you selected before opening the Properties dialog box.
Configuration settings can be inherited. Settings can be defined in the Machine.config file, which acts as the base configuration for all Web sites on the server. For more information about ASP.NET configuration files, see ASP.NET Configuration File Hierarchy and Inheritance.
