Environment


Novell Access Management 3 Linux Access Gateway
Novell Access Management 3 Access Administration
Access Manager 3 Support Pack 1 Interim Release 1
Migrated from iChain environment where the [Alias Host Names] section was configured

Situation

Multihomed setup with multiple path based and domain based reverse proxy services.
Host names and IP addresses entered in the "Exclude DNS Name List" on an
reverse proxy's "HTML Rewriting" page does not appear to be read properly - despite
adding this entry, rewriter is changing/rewriting URL's containing the host name or ip
address specified to be the accelerator's Published DNS Name. These references should
not be rewritten if they are in the exclude list.

No problem occurs when no multihoming enabled.

Resolution

Under the"Exclude DNS Name List", make sure you add the DNS name of the reverse proxy service and not the DNS name or IP address of the origin web server. This will workaround the problem for now until it is fixed.

Another option is to use the and strings within the Web page to disable the rewriting of references in there.
