IIS exception on create AD agent: The request filtering module is configured to deny the file extension
Henry reported that he got the above exception when clicking on the Create Agent (http://<EvB server>:8081/Agents page) due to IIS' "request filtering module" which I can only guess has been activated as a result of a recent Windows Update (???). When Henry reported the problem I tried for myself in my own lab environment and sure enough the same page (http://127.0.0.1:8081/Agents/Create/Unify.EventBroker.Agent.AD) was dispayed with the following error summary:
HTTP Error 404.7 - Not Found
The request filtering module is configured to deny the file extension.
Henry explained that he was able to selectively remove the filter, but I can only presume that this will be affecting EVERYONE now that this feature appears to have been activated in my lab without me even realizing it. We probably need to (a) add some extra doco in the troubleshooting section, (b) add something in the prerequisites section to ensure people avoid this in the first place, and (c) look at a way of automating the removal of this filter as part of the installation???
