My setup may be a little unusual. I'm running a Shibboleth 2.4 SP on
Apache 1.3. Not ideal, but it's the Blackboard app and Apache 1.3 is
what it runs on.
The IdP is OpenAthens LA.
My application is behind multiple load balancers which answer multiple

are all answered by the same application, although only the
owen.vle.keele.ac.uk URL is unique to this server. The other URL's are
fed through load balancers to a number of backend servers. This isn't
virtual hosting, it's really just multiple, load balanced, URL's for the
I've been reading this excellent piece of documentation
and noticed that the application ID can be specified in the apache
ShibRequestSetting applicationId myappname
So what I've done is to build the shibboelth integration and that is
working fine for the owen.vle.keele.ac.uk URL. Then I put the following
into the apache config file
ShibRequestSetting applicationId default
hoping that would override the application ID so that the default
application would be used for all the URL's that this server might answer.
However that's not what is happening. It's possible that I've just
messed up the syntax but I'd like to ask the collective wisdom of this
mailing list whether I'm approaching this problem in the right way.
Thanks is advance.
