SAP Webdispatcher as www.xxx.com

Hi,

We are using the SAP Netweaver Portal (NW2004s SR1).

We have two networks access through WAN and internet.

We are using the SAP Webdispatcher in MSCS with virtualhost name "webhost.yyy.com"

The Network Coming through Internet will go through Reverse Proxy.

The Network Coming thourgh WAN and LAN will go directly to SAP Webdispatcher.

In both the case we would like to use www.yyy.com

We will break the SSL at SAP Webdispatcher.

We dont have any conversion at reverse proxy.

Finnaly if we look it should be link this

www.<mycompany>.com --> once logoin to portal the URL should be still www.<mycompany>.com/irj/portal

Even for both Internet and intranet we need the same.

Can this is achievable through web dispatcher if so where can we find the steps for this configuration.

Can any one let us know the views on this.

Thanks & Regards

Sumanth

    Hi Thunga,

    i don't think this will suite your needs perfectly. But, have a look.

    <b>The URL redirect</b>

    If you want to access the portal using the URL http:// HOST-FOR-WEBDISP:PORT and you are using SAP Webdispatcher, then you need to redirect the above URL to http://HOST-FOR-WEBDISP:PORT/irj/index.html. This can be achieved by editing the sapwebdisp.pfl file and adding the following parameter,

    <i># SAP Web Dispatcher Web Administration</i>

    <b>icm/HTTP/redirect_0 = PREFIX=/, TO=/irj/index.html</b>

    If you are coming from outside your network, then you have to define a mapping rule at the reverse proxy server level that will re-write the URLs as required. You will have to check the documentation of your reverse proxy to define the rule.

    Web request from Internet -> reverse proxy server(define a mapping rule for the URL rewrite) -> Hit the load balancer(Web Dispatcher) -> The request is sent to the load balanced application server

    Web request from Intranet -> Hit the load balancer(Web Dispatcher) perfrom the URL re-direct here -> The request is sent to the load balanced application server.

    If you are not doing any conversion at the reverse proxy, then the Web dispatcher can assume the role of a reverse proxy and you have to perform the URL redirects at the load balancer level. In this case, check if the earlier poster's solution works for you.
