Subject RE: Logfile for isapi_redirector2.dll?
Date Fri, 25 Jul 2003 16:59:43 GMT
Well we haven't solved the question about the logfile but the second
question is interesting as well:-)

I think that the problem is that there is only one registry entry. If you
could have more than one you could configure different isapi_filters in IIS
Management Console, then use the one you want for each application. With
different registry entries you could then use more than one file. That in turn would allow various mappings in
Tomcat. But from what I can tell the file says "I'll
handle everthing that matches these patterns." If it allowed you to say
"send requesting this pattern here, ones matching this other pattern here,
etc." that also would solve the problem.

This may be just rehashing what Nathan has already said. But I just wanted
to take a look for myself and see if I could get a clearer understanding of
just what was happening. I think the lack of documentation on
isapi_redirector2 does add to the problem but as John has said before there
may be a very good reason for that.

Sure, but that specifies the machine where Tomcat is running. I could
specify different hosts for different workers if I want multiple instances
of Tomcat running on different machines. I have one instance of Tomcat on
one machine and one instance of IIS on another. However, two virtual
hosts/web sites under IIS each of which need access to one and only one
webapp on the single Tomcat instance.
