Portal is not accessible anymore as soon as the load balancer configuration is done on one middle tier.

The customer wants to install a multiple middle tier Portal 11G instance. The portal middle tier installation works fine as long as it is not configured for the load balancer access. Once configured, browsing to the Portal URL gives the error below:

The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.


The Portal 11G has been Configured with multiple middle tiers following the Documentation below.

6.3 Configuring Multiple Middle Tiers with a Load Balancing Router
