Unable to login to Sites via LoadBalancer: cas/login returns internal proxy (or different hostname) instead of originating host in service url
WebCenter Sites UI is configured to be accessed via an externally accessible loadbalancer which forwards the request to a webserver/internal proxy which routes to the WebCenter Sites cluster members.
loadbalancer --> webserver/internalproxy --> app server (Sites + Cas)
When accessing Sites UI via the loadbalancer url, e.g http://loadbalancer/sites/login, this gets redirected to cas, which returns http://loadbalancer/cas/login?service=http://internalproxy/sites/wem/fatwire/wem/Welcome
- The webserver/interal proxy is not accessible externally, and so this login attempt fails.
