Domino Authentication lost between POST and GET

I'm trying to set up a test version of a production website hosted on R5.  Production consists of 2 servers which are load balanced.  URL for production goes through a load balancer, and domino is configured for multi server authentication.

I'm trying to set up a test environment on the production server with different replicas of the production database, which I have mapped to www5.testsite.com.

I can log into production just fine, however, when I try to log into the test url, the POST command in domcfg.nsf log contains my authenticated username, but the next GET command does not.  Trouble is that this database is set up for anonymous access.  The URL is redirecting properly, yet I cannot open the URL "....test.nsf?OpenDatabase&login=1"  I get thrown back into the log in screen.  

Any thoughts?

How did you do that?

What did you do in domcfg.nsf? Isn't it domlog.nsf you're referring to?

My thoughts and 2 cents...

Actually, I have come to find out it's a load balancer problem.....even after the people who support the hardware said it was functioning correctly.  It seems this equipment is having trouble with user authentication (which is configured in domcfg.nsf - maybe that's an internal thing).

I think you helped me on my other Google Analytics problem where Google said it was a known issue.  It's just been one of those weeks man.  I'm going to give you the points for that one.

Domcfg for user authentication? Not to my knowledge. The ACL of the database. Do you have a user Anonymous in the ACL, with Author rights?

And thanks for the points!

Seroiusly not my week.  Just wrote a post and the site errored out, erasing everything

Abridged...

The problem was with SSO.  Couldn't get past the login screen until authentication was changed from multi server to single server.

Originally I did mean the requests view in domlog.nsf.

And finally, the site runs on R5 with less power than my laptop.  It's been time to upgrade for awhile.

Thanks for your quick responses on the last two problems.  Does it seem fair to only award the 125 for the google problem as this has been solved?

Why don't you install a simple Domino test server on your laptop then? I would, if I had a laptop... ;)

Ask for a refund, no problem. We'll meet again...
