APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using the on demand router, session affinity might not be
    maintained depending on the order of the cookies in the header
    sent to DataPower.
    
    This produces an error in the log with the following format:
    Affinity was broken for a request because Server was not found
    for cloneId '<CloneID>; ABC=abc'
    
    Where ABC is an extraneous cookie and <CloneID> is the expected
    cloneID.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • For customers using 6.0.0.9, 6.0.1.5 or 7.0.0.2, when using ODR
    with DataPower, the appliance might fail to parse multiple
    cookie values properly.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
