Sorry it wasn't there ...
Instead, I see a SITESERVER cookie. Since our J2EE app server was behind IIS server, could it be possible that IIS traps the servlet cookies without sending it to teh client?

No, the client has to send the cookie along with it's requests in order to identify itself to the servlet container. That's how session tracking works (unless, of course, the servlet container is using URL rewriting to track teh session).

You may never see the sessionID cookies - seems to me they have a lifetime limited to one particular invocation of the browser, the browser may keep them in memory.
