SRVE0255E: A WebGroup/Virtual Host to handle / has not been defined.

Another warning that we see in our logs in HUGE quantities is: -

SRVE0255E: A WebGroup/Virtual Host to handle / has not been defined.

This occurs, for us, because our WebSEAL secure reverse proxy servers ( WebSEAL is part of the IBM Tivoli Access Manager for e-Business authentication/authorisation/access management solution ).

It looks like WebSEAL regularly polls the IBM BPM servers, but "merely" requests the / context root e.g.


rather than: _


and the underlying WAS does not have a Virtual Host set up for /, only for context roots such as: -

/portal
/ProcessCenter
/ProcessAdmin

etc.

Given that we have a large farm of WebSEAL servers sitting in front of IBM BPM, we see the message really rather regularly.

It's another "error" that we can safely ignore, but it's a bit of a niggle.
