Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server webserver  *
    *                  plugin users                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The $WSRA (websphere remote host) and   *
    *                      $WSRH (websphere remote address)        *
    *                      headers are not added by the http       *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The $WSRA and $WSRH headers can be used at WebSphere to
    identify the true client when requests flow thru the http
    plugin. This issue only occurs with 9.0.5.1.
    

Problem conclusion

  • There was a check in the code to prevent the header from being
    added if these headers existing in the inbound request
    received from plugin. The check was in error and prevented the
    headers from being added.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.17 & 9.0.5.2.  Please refer to the Recommended
