We have the following general architecture:
Browser--> SecurityProxy(Auth) --> CSS (ssl frontend and backend) --> oneof[BEA ServerA1-A4 on machineA which use JSESSIONID_cookienameA, BEA ServerB1-B4 on machineB with JSESSIONID_cookienameB).
Not an unreasonable requirement. But we find that the stickiness is not retained across the two machines.
i.e., first accessing a url-A on machineA we stick to ServerA2 (e.g.), then accessing a url-B on machineB we stick to ServerB3(e.g.), however, reaccessing url-A, we are sent to ServerA3 on machineA, even though the browser and security proxy are faithfully forwarding both the cookies.
The sticky parameters are:
string prefix "def_clus_JSESSIONID="
string eos-char ";"
string operation hash-crc32
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
