IBM HTTP Server redirection - version 610

We have recently migrated our application from WAS5.x to WAS6.
The previous version of WAS was having IHS 1.3.28 and WAS6 is having IHS 610 installed.

we had a RewriteRule which was working fine in IHS 1.3.28 (httpd.conf) the same rule when I copy to httpd.conf 610 version, it works fine but the application context root starts giving 404 : File not found error
GET /App_root/index.html HTTP/1.1" 404 63 (from access_log)

the sample of the RewriteRule

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/$ /index.html [PT]
RewriteRule ^/(.*) /App_Root/$1 [PT]
RewriteRule ^/App_Root/(.*)/$ /App_Root/$1/index.html [PT]

I wanted to know if there is a difference between how these two version behave in terms of rewriteRule and what could be the resolution for this.

can anybody help there please.

One place to check would be to look at the IHS Plug-in file for the web application context root.
I agree. Here's the link:
