service having Virtual directory with '.' name is not working or able to browse RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    We have one service managementService.asmx which we published on IIS with virtual directory name "Union.Mangement.Service" on 2 servers.

    at one server it is working/able to browse it but on the other service is giving 404 http error.

    When i remove the '.' from virtual directory name ie. "UnionMangementService" then it is working .

    Need help urgently to know what is the issue on another server that virtual directory with '.' is not working but without dot it works.

    We published the service on IIS6 .

  • Hi,

    For your question, it seems that it has something related with the IIS deployment, then it will be better if you can try to post it in the IIS forums for more help:
    #IIS Forums: .

    Besides, for the question about the asmx web service, this forum will be more appropriate.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Best Regards,
    Amy Peng
