URL issue with Windows 7 Internet Explorer 11 and SAP NW PI 7.

Hello SAP community,

I am facing a strange issue with Windows 7 - Internet Explorer 11 and SAP NW java services (I hope I am in the correct discussion) ...

When I try to open URL http://sapserver.hosters-name:port it is working so far with Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 11.

But when I click than on NWA (example), I am getting "http 500 server error".

I don't have the issue, when I start-up a VMware Workstation with Windows XP and Internet Explorer 8.

But now the strange part: In our network DNS (Domain Name Service), we can also open the URL by http://sapserver.our-dns:port.

Than it is working without problems with Windows 7 and Internet Explorer.

I would agree to state the comment - it is just a Windows 7/Internet Explorer 11 issue, if it wouldn't work for both URLs (http://sapserver.hosters-name:port = problem URL; http://sapserver.our-dsn:port = working).

We are using a SAP NW PI 7.x system. Some URLs for PI are using http://sapserver.hosters-name:port/java service.

Do you have any hints what is cause the issue - I suspect some with Internet Explorer and Firefox (because with Google Chrome at least the URL for NWA is opened, beside the issue, Google Chrome can't display NWA content)?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

Carlos

    Hi all,

    I think I found the solution.

    The reason seems to be, the domain name for http://sapserver.our-dns:port, "our-dns" was already added to the compatibility view settings of Microsoft Internet Explorer.

    That seemed to be the reason, why it was working with http://sapserver.our-dns:port.

    When I now added for http://sapserver.hosters-name:port the domain "hosters-name" to the compatibility view settings it is now working.

    Internet Explorer Options => Settings for compatibility view => Add domain

    Best regards

    Carlos

    Could you look in your network settings (extended TCP/IP settings -> DNS)? It looks like you append DNS suffixes to hosts. And could you post your host file? You can find it in %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc
