Troubleshooting the IIS Redirector for EAServer 4.2Having trouble using IIS with the EAServer Web Server Redirector Plug-in? Follow these steps to verify the environment is configured properly.
- Verify these files are included in the EAServer DLL (or the EAServer DLL/debug
directory for debug version) directory:
- Check the PATH system variable to ensure the EAServer DLL directory
(or the EAServer DLL/debug directory for debug version) is included
- Verify the WSPLUGIN_CONFIG_FILE system variable is pointing to
where the redirector.cfg file is located.
For example, if the redirector.cfg file is in c:\winnt\system32\inetpub\redirector.cfg then the WSPLUGIN_CONFIG_FILE variable should be c:\winnt\system32\inetpub\redirector.cfg
- Check logging settings in the redirector.cfg configuration file:
- connector.IIS.LogLevel verbose is only for debug version
of the DLLs -- it will not work with the runtime DLLs
- connector.IIS.LogFile must be set to a valid drive and folder,
otherwise the plugin may not load
- connector.IIS.LogLevel verbose is only for debug version of the DLLs -- it will not work with the runtime DLLs
- Look for error information in the log file (pointed to by connector.IIS.LogFile
- As a test, expand the context path so the redirector will handle all requests
sent to the web server, by setting Connector.IIS.URLS in the redirector.cfg
file as follows:
Verify entries in redirector.cfg have a corresponding protocol listener defined in EAServer. For example, the following entry in redirector.cfg would require an EAServer HTTP protocol listener defined with the host name of prodhost and a port number of 8080:
Examine the log file to ensure the hostname is correct, and port number is valid. .
For example, given the following entries in the redirector log file:
Connector.WebApp /enowcorporate = http://prodhost:8080
The log file should show:
Wed May 21 16:53:58 2003 INFO: ws: 1de1090, URL: [http://prodhost:8080], protocol: [http], host: [prodhost], port:  down_time:0
- Using the IIS administration tool, check the virtual directory you are using.
Verify that the icon for the virtual directory looks like this:
If the icon looks as expected, skip to step 12.
- If the directory looks like this:
then a property needs to be changed.
Open the properties for the directory and click the Remove button in the Application Settings section.
- Restart IIS.
- If none of the previous steps help identify the problem, try the debug version of the plugin and check error information in the log.
