How to have a different Header for different Roles

To create a different header for a role or organization you must first create in the /etc/opt/SUNWps/desktop directory a directory with a known name that you will use in a minute.

Next create the JSPTabContainer (or other approriate folder) can copy the header.jsp (or what ever is different for this role) to the directory. Portal server will look here and what it doesn't find here it will get from default.

Next go into the console and go to the appropirate location: role, org,   what ever and go to services --> desktop.
On the desktop page you will see a field called Desktop Type. put the name of the directory in this field. This is the template directory that will be used when building the page.

Note: I had to restart once but not all the time. So if it doesn't work restart portal.
