7.5.0-ER1-833 8.0.0-216 8.0.6-119 8.5.1-021 8.7.0-172

Description (partial)

If  'advancedproxyconfig > dns > Find web server by > [1] Use client-supplied address then DNS' is chosen (by default) WSA aborts transactions that specify invalid hosts even if client supplied IPs are valid. 

If clients can resolve a domain/website but WSA cannot, then access to the website/s may fail especially in transparent setup.

WSA is configured with CLI> advancedproxyconfig > dns > Find web server by>[1]
