    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: On demand router does not take matched  *
    *                      virtual host into consideration when    *
    *                      choosing end point on the selected      *
    *                      target server.                          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    On demand router selects first HTTP/HTTPS end point on the
    selected target server to route requests to. It does not
    select the end point that matches an alias in the virtual host
    that matches the incoming request.
    

Problem conclusion

  • On demand router has been changed to select end point that
    matches an alias in the matched virtual host for an incoming
    request. If no end point of the selected target server matches
    an alias then the ODR will pick the first end point.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.4.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
