  • Help with URl rewrites in ARR

    Aug 14, 2017 03:43 PM|daniel555|LINK

    Hello all,

    I was put in charge of using ARR as a proxy and setting up a new web application to run simultaneously with our old one.  I am simply a programmer that was put in charge of this, so I am struggling a little bit and could really use some help.

    My set up:  I have two server farms and they each have 2 servers in them: tomcat2 and weblogic2

    So to avoid everyone at our organization having to change bookmarked links we decided to use a cookie to determine whether the request should go to tomcat server farm or weblogic server farm. 

    Currently I can get the url rewrite to work, but for whatever reason it seems like the "stop processing of subsequent rules" doesn't work.  I end up getting a ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error.

    I am not sure what information would be beneficial to you, but I can provide anything needed and I will do it as quickly as possible.  Thank you in advance for your help.

    EDIT: For whatever it's worth, I actually think the rewrite is working, but something with the session is happening.  Depending on what DNS I use to access a certain page (regardless of on tomcat or weblogic) that determines if my session variables or null, or really if the session is the same as what I was using.

    EDIT: Took one server out of my tomcat server farm, and everything works correctly now.  Some how it isn't sharing sessions or something.  Client Affinity is checked.  During a lot of the navigation the session seems to stay intact, but other times it doesnt. Does client affinity go away after a URL rewrite to a new server farm?

    Hi daniel555,

    Could you provide your rewrite rule and a sample about the redirected url? In addition, to fix the too_many_redirect error, please enable the failed request tracing which could provide the rewrite detail in IIS pipeline:


    To ensure the session will not disturb the rewrite, you may need to check whether the session state is set to something like state server.

    Best Regards,
