How to Configure IIS server for WebLogic

Introduction

This document describes the process of configuring a Microsoft IIS Web Server as a front end to your WebLogic Java Application server.

The IIS server accepts requests for InfoView and forwards these requests to your WebLogic server using a WebLogic plug-in installed on the IIS server.

Create the directory

The initial step in the process is to create a directory on the IIS server.

Here are the steps:

1. Ensure IIS is installed on some server.

2. Create a directory on the IIS server called <installation drive>:\IISredirect

3. The WebLogic plug-in for IIS consists of two files. (iisproxy.dll and iisforward.dll). Copy iisproxy.dll and iisforward.dll from the <installation drive>:\bea\weblogic81\server\bin directory to the <installation drive>:\IISredirect folder on the IIS server.

These DLL files are for the WebLogic plug-in for IIS. These files could also be located under <installation

drive>:\bea\weblogic81\server\plugin\win.

4. Create a blank text file in the <installation drive>:\ IISredirect directory. Name it iisproxy.ini.

5. Open iisproxy.ini. Copy the following lines into the file:

WebLogicHost=hostname or FQDN of Weblogic server WebLogicPort=7001 or whatever port weblogic is using

WlForwardPath=/businessobjects/enterprise115/desktoplaunch

ConnectTimeoutSecs=10

ConnectRetrySecs=10

WLIOTimeoutSecs=2700

WLTempDir= Install Drive:\IISredirect

Note: These settings are case sensitive. For debugging purposes, add Debug=ON to the iisproxy.ini. The log file is located in <installation drive>:\IISredirect.
