We are using the app_offline.htm file to take servers down for maintainence. I know we can manually take the RSERVER out of service, but the actuall objective is to keep the server up, and let the ASP page return the message to user.
So the app_offline.htm file causes IIS to shut down the website and only return the content of the app_offline.htm.
Here is a blog post I found about the app_offline.htm file.
Is there some way the ACE can handle this error better?
