Is MARS (Multiple Active Result Sets) a requirement?



We've run a website without MARS for a while, but now it's throwing errors that a DataReader is already open and must be closed first. So, is Episerver tested without MARS or should it always be turned on?

I believe it's required, I've had issues without it myself, ex., Johan Björnfot wrote to me that I have to make sure to have it set to true.

I don't think they would test this without a requirement/bug report, so it would be in the documentation... Probably :))

Couldn't find anything in the documentation. But seems to be a requirement as per Johans answer in your thread. Thanks.

Can't mark your reply as an answer :(

Another bug on the world. 

I do agree that this should be a part of documentation. It's there when you install a website from a scratch, but if you are generating a connectionstring from server explorer in VS, you don't get it by default and you really need to know about it to add it back (or you hit a bug and realize).

I'll ping Andrea about it, so she can add this information to the documentation.
