Expired sessions

Today we are going to discuss one of the errors that we have noticed in SharePoint Health Analyzer. as per that exception, here is the reflected information.

Exact Exception: Expired sessions are not being deleted from the ASP.NET Session State database.

Mentioned explanation: If expired sessions are not deleted, the server that hosts the ASP.NET Session State database may run out of disk space and the SharePoint farm may cease to function.

Remedy reflected: Connect to the server that hosts the ASP.NET Session State database, start the SQL Server Agent service, and verify that a DeleteExpiredSessions job is registered for the database. If you are using SQL Server Express, the SQL Server Agent service is not available. For more information about this rule,

Troubleshooting done:
Checked the timer job status named ‘State Service Delete Expired Sessions’
How we have checked this:
-Open SharePoint 2010 central administration
-Timer Jobs
-Review Job definitions
-Check the job ‘State Service Delete Expired Sessions’
-By default it runs on hourly basis, so we have executed ‘Run now’ but that didn’t result any output.

Checked the stored procedure named ‘DeleteExpiredSessions’ is exist or not.
How we have checked this:
-Login to the SQL SERVER BOX by using farm account
-expand the list of databases
-look out for Session State database
-Expand the same database
-expand programmability
-expand stored procedures and you will find that above mentioned stored procedure name in that list.
-if it’s not listed there then we need to create that stored procedure.

Once you find that stored procedure then simply right click on it and execute it.

After this, simply go to the central administration-health analyzer- click on that warning and select ‘reanalyze now’ option. That’s it.

Issue Resolved.
