I would like to know if it possible to change the defaults settings on the DX. I'd like to put the Override Custom IP Log Header in the cluster's settings in mode advanced, by default.


If it's possible what is the procedure to do this;


Best regards,

Clusters take the global setting by default for Customiplogheader.   It can either be modified per cluster or globally.  For per cluster changes use:  


   set cluster <name> customiplogheader <description>



To reset it back to using the global value use:


  clear cluster <name> customiplogheader




The 5.3 Command Reference manual has the following information about setting the global value:


set server customiplogheader

Description Use the set server customiplogheader command to set the custom HTTP header

that will be added along with the client’s original IP at the client’s request. The

header can either be a literal or a custom field in which the DX will insert the origin

client’s IP address. For additional information, see the “Logging” chapter of the

Installation and Administration Guide for DXOS.

Setting cusomiplogheader to “X-Forwarded-For” allows you to override the

REMOTE_ADDR HTTP variable that BEA Weblogic uses to look up client IP addresses. To

do so, set “X-Forwarded-For” to the client's IP address, then set the

customiplogheader to “X-Forwarded-For”.

This command does not take effect until after a write operation.

Syntax: set server customiplogheader <header>





 To reset this global variable use:


  clear server customiplogheader
