TIBCO BW 5.14 - Facing issue with hostname but works fine with IP

uday M

Recommended Posts

We have two servers - tibcoA, tibcoB (Both running behind LoadBalancer)

LoadBancer - tibco_bw_sit

We have upgraded to BW 5.14 , created two new domains on the two servers (tibcoA, tibcoB) and all our application are up and running.

Now we are facing an issue with load balancer. Load_Balancer is unable to access the web applications via hostname but same is accessible via IP .

Example :

https://172.X.X.23:5558/wsil ----> Working fine

https://tibco_bw_sit:5558/wsil ---> Erroring out "This error (HTTP 400 Bad Request) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the web server, but the webpage could not be found because of a problem with the address"

When we are trying to access locally (directly pointing to server with out Load_Balancer) it works fine.

Example :

http://tibcoadev:5558/XXX.serviceagentwsdl ---> Working fine (Please note this is not ssl call)

And also please note : 1) Same is working fine with old domains (BW 5.11). i.e. Load_Balancer is able to access the applications via hostname as well as IP. (Old domain residing on the same server but on the different mount point). https://172.X.X.23:5558/wsil ----> Working fine https://tibco_bw_sit:5558/wsil ---> Working fine Please let me know your take on this issue.

Issue is resolved.

This is due to latest version ofapache tomcat which is shipped in TRA hotfix. this version of apache doesnot support "-" (underscore) in the hostname.


1. unstall the tra hotfix (not suggestable as issue might occur when u upgrade later)

2. Change the server type in http connections to HTTP component instead ofTomcat
