Auditing event activities are not recorded on the additional web server

When orion web console users are browsing through the additional web server, auditing events are not being recorded into the database.


For example, login and logout activities of orion users are not being recorded when using the additional web server, however events show ok when they are logged into the primary web console.


Steps to determine or reproduce this issue:


Login to primary web console


Login to additional web server



Open database manager and run this query which simply selects all login and logout events sorted by the most recent time.


SELECT TOP 1000 * FROM [dbo].[AuditingEvents]
where ActionTypeID IN ('1','2')
order byTimeLoggedUtc DESC


From here, you should see the times you logged on and verify that you do not see any auditing events recorded for when you logged on to the additional web server.
