Recently migrated our .net 4.0 web application to .net 4.7.2. Setting up the Dev environment and it is not a web farm scenario. The machine key is not auto generated also. Hit the 'Validation of viewstate MAC failed' error on Login page button click. MAC validation always fails in IE and in Chrome only once or twice a day.

Web.config :

<machineKey decryptionKey="F4B786E157C86740A610D....ghfghhgfh3F5C69,IsolateApps" validationKey="80DAFD9....3hgfhgfAC1CDD71B66820B664160337A4C6179C6C1480C8DA6EFD3C17D34B7BCE11A4ED8C02DD0F...3EC5556C4029084A8871,IsolateApps" validation="AES"/>

Tried the following;

  1. removed the action tag in form
  2. turned off macValidation in web.config
  3. regenerated the machine key
  4. at app pool set 'Virtual Memory Limit' to 0 and 'Load User Profile' to true

but no luck.
