I am running websphere 3.5.3 on aix up to this point we were hitting our servlets by hostname/appname which worked fine.We have know added a new IP address and DNS name to be used from the outside world.After adding these as host aliases to my host i get a page not found error when trying to hit it using ip/appname if i just enter the ip i do get the IBM http server so i know its going to the right box.
Can nayone help with this please.

You need to configure this new hostname and dns as alias in the virtualhost you are using for your application server.Then regenerate the plugin information by going to the advanced tab of any one of the Servlet Engines of the app servers.This should change the timestamp of in $WAS_ROOT/temp/ directory.Restart your web server and try to access thru browser with the new host name.

I don't know if it applies- but if you have your webserver on another server(like in the DMZ)- you need to take the vhosts files and move them out the webserver as well.
I agree. Here's the link:
