The redirect to the Change Password Page Fails with a HTTP 404 error in an OAM/OIM integrated Environment after installing BP05 for version 126.96.36.199,
if OAM and OIM are front ended by an OHS containing a Webgate and listening on the default HTTP port 80.
The problem occurs regardless if the protected resource is accessed with or without specifying the port 80.
The problem does not occur if the resource is accessed via the ip address :
or if the resource is accessed via a virtual host using the same OHS/Webgate on a different port :
The same configuration works , if OAM 188.8.131.52 BP03 is installed.
After installing BP05 a httpheader trace shows a different process flow, if port 80 is used.
If BP03 is used or the resource is accessed using BP05 with a different port than 80, the OAM server redirects to "/admin/faces/pages/pwdmgmt.jspx"
after credentials are submitted and the Change Password function is triggered.
If a resource is accessed via port 80 and BP05 is installed , the OAM server redirects to "/obrar.cgi" and the hostname is not set for the "redirectto" URL.
The OAM diagnostic log file shows:
[oam_server1] [TRACE:16]
