502! Bad Gateway
My application is Oracle HR. I have recorded the script on Webload 6. I now try running the script on 'Browser Playback' and it gives me the following error:
The following error occurred:
The host name was not found during the DNS lookup. Contact your system administrator if the problem is.not found by retrying the URL. (DNS_HOST_NOT_FOUND)
BUT..........when i enter the URL on a browser directly, it works.
Does it mean that Webload does not support Oracle HR, Oracle portal applications even though its a browser based.
Re: 502! Bad Gateway
I'm using Webload 5, but have had a similar type of problem. We were looking to test an application from different sides of a firewall.
From what I understand, the load generators communicate back to the load console for DNS resolution in the scripts (over port 9000 I believe). So if the DNS on the console isn't configured correctly, or the load generator can't communicate to the console over port 9000, this could lead to an error like you're seeing.
The workaround for us was to replace the named URL in our scripts with the IP addresses- after that the scripts worked.
