This report failed to load because session state is not turned on

Like I said in one of my comments, I’ll be posting some about SharePoint 2010. Here’s the first.

I ran into an issue when checking out the new Asset Web Database site template. When I tried to access the reports I was confronted with the error “This report failed to load because session state is not turned on”.

After some googling I found the answer. Because I installed SharePoint 2010 as a standalone server the Session State Service was not enabled. To enable the Session State Service you have to run the Enable-SPSessionStateService cmdlet in the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell. This will create a database with the name that you need to provide in the command line or after it’s asked. After doing an iisreset you should be good to go.

  1. This may be a silly question, but how do I know which DatabaseName to use?? I’m having the same issue…
