    The customer will complain that affinity is being broken for
    request(s) that had affinity established by a prior Routing Rule
    serviced request.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A new Intelligent Management Enabled Web Server custom boolean
    property, 'AffinityOverAppEd', has been added to preserve
    established affinity before applying Routing Rule
    determinations.
