Bug in Web Repository Manager ?


Hi experts,

I have set up a Web RM to crawl and index a web site on an intranet. The web site contains news, and the url follow a "Year/Month/Day" pattern, for instance "/web_rm_news/web_site_news/Year_2006/Month_2006.06/Day_2006.06.01/news_1.htm" is the URL to access news_1 from the web repository.

I want to create one index per month, so I set up "/Year_2006/Month_2006.06/" as starting page of my repository. The crawler fetches the page of the month and on that page follows a link for each day, which is like "/Year_2006/Month_2006.06/Day_2006.06.01". The error occurs there : the RM returns an error code "403 : not authorized".

To test the behaviour, enter the URL directly in the browser : "http://<server>:<port>/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/" and I get the same 403 error. I need to add a "/" at the end or the URL to get it to work !

This behaviour normally never happens on standard web sites, you don't need to add a "/" at the end of the URL so that the browser automatically fetches the "index.htm" file.

Is that a known bug of the Web RM ? Or did I miss something in its configuration ?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Best Regards,


Edit : The server is SPS16
