Issue Summary: Issue with IIS/TOmcat and Mid Tier
There were no errors in the midtier or tomcat logs that would give us any idea.
Add the following to the IIS web.config file:
<httpRuntime requestPathInvalidCharacters="" requestValidationMode="2.0" />
<pages validateRequest="false" />
The file is located in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\web.config.
