Posted 24 May 2006 - 10:32 AM

Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster.

The above message is what I get in my ASP.NET 2.0 page. I have debugging turned on and for those who want to see the stack trace, see below.

In my old web site I had a frame set with a ASP page in left frame and ASP.NET 2.0 page in right frame. It was working perfectly.

Then I changed the frame set into IFRAMEs (well actually using floating/draggable/resizable IFRAMEs from http://blogus.xilinus.com/ ). Now I get the above error message when I try to load up my ASP.NET 2.0 page within a IFRAME created by http://blogus.xilinus.com/. ASP pages are fine.
