Redirection issue with Open Doc via Load Balancer in SAO BI 4.1

The requirement relates nearly to the one that you posted http://scn.sap.com/thread/3452977, one of your threads!

Here's what we are fixed with:

Environment Details:

Version: SAP BI 4.1 SP2

Application Server: Web Logic 10.3

Server OS: AIX 7.1 TL2

CMS DB: Oracle 11gR2

Reporting DB: Oracle 11gR2

Deployment: Clustered and Distributed.

                  2 CMS on AIX nodes resp.,  (E.g IP: 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2)

                  2 Web Logic on AIX Nodes resp., (E.g IP: 170.0.0.1 and 170.0.0.2)

                  1 Load Balancer. (E.g. IP: 172.0.0.10)

A) We have configured SSL on the Load Balancer @ port 8272. B) Currently only one Web Logic is kept running for testing. (170.0.0.1) C) Both the CMC Nodes are up and running. Scenario:

We have created a custom application using the BusinessObjects SDK, similar to BI Launchpad, this portal is our Bank. (RESERVE BANK OF INDIA) where we have also referenced some open document links. Now when ever a user opens the portal with the LB IP: (e.g. https://172.0.0.10:8272/DBIE, he receives the home page, where we have open document links and an option to login to BO from there as well.

At this moment, the user is viewing in https:// page.

The problem that we are facing is, as the user clicks on any of the open document links from our portal, the page appears blank.

When tried with Google Chorme browser, here is what we receive:

===========================================

Mixed Content: The page at 'https://dbietest.rbi.org.in/DBIE/dbie.rbi?site=statistics' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure resource

'http://dbietest.rbi.org.in/BOE/OpenDocument/opendoc/openDocument.jsp?rbiApp..CDBMSAPP_2:6400@664423JZ78iRurpokhdtu....etc must be served ober HTTPS.

FAILED To load resource: net ::ERR_CACHE_MISS

FAILED To load resource: net ::ERR_CACHE_MISS

FAILED To load resource: net ::ERR_CACHE_MISS

===========================================

Can you please share where are we missing?

Also, based on the error, it seems that the browser first takes it as an https:// page but the internal open document links are http://. As we have SSL on Load Balancer only. Is it the browser behavior, for not encrypting an https:// to http??

We have tried with IE and Mozilla, IE Appears blank, Mozilla throws Page not found, and Chrome has a diff definition.

Do we need to configure https:// for Open document which is inside BOE.war? If yes, how can we configure and where, either on the Load Balancer (Which already has our custom application), or on the Web Server / Web Logic Application Server?

Would appreciate your help, as we have procured new resources and this has halted our development.

Please suggest.Look forward to hearing from you soon.
