Symptoms

On Oracle iPlanet Web Server 6.1 the 404 response error page as configured by send-error is not displaying for a specific uri to a page that is not found.   The access logs shows the request is getting a 404 response code from somewhere, but not from the send-error function. This article explains a situation which would cause the send-error function not to process.  Careful attention needs to be paid to the specific uri of the request and how it is suppose to process through the directive stages in the obj.conf configuration file.  Be sure to check for third party plugins.
