Help with load balancing using URLs on CSS 11501

Unanswered Question
May 30th, 2007

Hello

I am trying to setup load balancing using URLs on a CSS 11501 (OS version 08.20.1.01).

The access seems to work, with a small problem.

I want the access to http://172.16.20.4:8080/uat/... to served by one server (service "pacnag"). The access to http://172.16.20.4:8080/prod/... should be served by two servers (service "calnag" and "vannag").

When I access http://172.16.20.4:8080/uat/whoami.html from a web browser, the CSS is retrieving the webpage /uat/whoami.html from server "pacnag".

The access-log on Apache shows - "GET /uat/whoami.html HTTP/1.1" 200 40 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3". --> Note the "/uat/..." folder.

All web pages on server pacnag need to be placed in folder "/uat/...", and all web pages on the other two servers need to be placed under the "/prod/.." folder.

Is there a way to serve pages directly from the root of the real servers (serve web pages located directly under the root of the web server, instead of having to place all files in the /uat/... and /prod/... folders)?

In production we will use pages generated dynamically using Java on webserver. It would be nice to run the application on servers directly under the root, without having to worry about folders.

I included the relevant CSS configs.

Thank you,

Cristian

As per Cisco TAC, the CSS cannot do URL rewrites.

In my example, the real servers must have their content in /uat/... and /prod/... folders.

Thank you all,

Cristian
