We have a DNs name “abc.xyz.com” mentioned in the Proxy servers of IS admin page. As of today this DNS names point to a Primary proxy server ex: 188.8.131.52. Our infra team wants webMethods application alone to have a different Proxy server to be used, by adding an entry in a hosts file for this DNS name, so that we use the secondary proxy server(184.108.40.206).
They want us to add this entry in a hosts file at /etc folder.
So we want to know, whether the webMethods application will still do a lookup at hosts file and direct the call to secondary proxy server. This is needed on urgent basis, as there was a change planned on Proxy server and we need to see whether the WM application can still use the DNS abc.xyz.com but which points to the secondary proxy server (220.127.116.11) with usage of hosts file.
