Possible to deploy dynamic HTML report to a different server?

  • updated

Hello, I just purchased the Enterprise edition mostly for the dynamic HTML reports. These work great locally, using either the build-in or IIS web server (localhost). My issue is that I would like to host the generated dynamic report on a different IIS server. Same internal network, just a dedicated IIS machine. In the "Server" options I set the server URL to the new host server's IP and port. I network-shared the "WebApp" directory on my local machine and set that as the path for the new website on the new server. Accessing the new site (either going straight to the address or running "Analyze" from WebLog Expert) I receive the following error: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

The relevant stack trace lines are:
Alentum.WebLogExpert.WLEReporter.UpdateTranslation() +22

Alentum.WLEWebApp.MainWebForm.Page_Init(Object sender, EventArgs e) +5

I tried copying the entire WebApp directory to the new server; this results in the same error. 

Is using a different server as IIS host possible? Are there settings I missed or are incorrect? I did ensure that the IIS host has 4.5 installed. Should I have installed WebLog Expert on that machine in the first place?

Any help you can offer is much appreciated.




WebLog Expert needs to be installed on the server from which dynamic HTML reports are served, they won't work otherwise.
