|Applies To||AxM 4.8 agent for Apache for Linux|
|Issue||AxM 4.8 agent arbitrarilly redirect to port 80 when a loadbalancer is used to rewrite to a different port. ACTSESSION cookie retains port 80.|
When a url with a scheme of http (implied port 80 - http://) is processed by the AxM agent, the agent generates the ACTSESSION cookie with port 80 explicitly included in the retained url. After authenticating , the agent redirects back to this url. This mismatch results in a failure at the load balancer.
|Cause||This was determined not to be a bug, the ACTSESSION cookie has always included the port by design. The behavior was changed via RSAs enhancement request process and a new parameter for the webagent.conf and a hotfix has been introduced to allow configuring this behavior or disabling the behavior. |
The readme includes the following addition to the webagent.conf
# Indicates whether port number should be included in the retained url.

For the 4.8 agent, apply hotfix 184.108.40.206
