An Internet Locator Server (ILS) client Time to Live (TTL) value is decremented by two minutes on each ILS modify.


The client TTL is not being reset in the correct place in the code. This causes an incorrect client TTL value to be returned. The incorrect value is always two minutes less than the current client TTL, due to some internal adjustments to deal with latency problems and because the TTL is not reset in the right place in the code. After each modify request, refresh the client TTL so that it will match the server TTL.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Site Server version 2.0.

This problem has been corrected in the latest U.S. Service Pack for Microsoft Site Server version 2.0. For information on obtaining the service pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):
