1 Web Dispatcher for 2 SAP Portal (Runnig on the same host)

Hello,

Can we connect one SAP Web Dispatcher to Multiple Java AS ? Or Is it limited to one web dispatcher to One Cluster of Java AS ?

I've installed 2 portal on one host and a Web dispatcher on a different host.

And it work's for one portal but I don't know if I can use one Web dispatcher for my 2 portal (on differents port off course) and I don't want to cascade it (OSS note 740234).

To get rid of it I installed 2 web dispatcher and link each WEB dispatcher to the differents portal and it works but I was wondering if it was possible to use only one Web dispatcher for 2 portal that are installed on the same host ?

Many thanks for your inputs.

Dom./

    Better late than never:

    As of Web Dispatcher 7.2, support for multiple instances is included:

    You can also set the SAP Web Dispatcher in front of multiple SAP and non-SAP Web Servers.

    The Web Dispatcher then serves as the entry point for these systems and performs the following tasks:

    - From the URL the Web Dispatcher identifies the system the request was destined for.

    - The Web Dispatcher then performs load balancing for this system.

      And I think that Web Dispatcher 7.2 is even able now to do URL rewriting "à la Apache".

      I did not try it yet but it is becoming a very powerful toy !

    Hi All,

    Where can I find the DVD's to download for Web Dispatcher 7.2? I've installed WD 7.0 Enhancement Package 2 from the Master and Kernel, but I can't find 7.2.

    Thanks,

    Diana

      Hi,

      You don't need to download a full DVD. Just download the last release of SAP Web Dispatcher 7.2 for your platform. It is available individually. At least for Windows 64 bit which is the platform I use.
