CSM - Is it possible to have the vserver (VIP) IP in a different subnet range than the real IP addresses in the serverfarm that is bound to it?

In other words, as an example a typical bridge configuration is like this:

vlan 221 client

ip address 10.20.220.2 255.255.255.0

gateway 10.20.220.1

!

vlan 220 server

ip address 10.20.220.2 255.255.255.0

<<<<<<<<<<<<Two VLANs with the same IP address are bridged together>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.

serverfarm WEBFARM

nat server

no nat client

real 10.20.220.10

inservice

real 10.20.220.20

inservice

!

vserver WEB

virtual 10.20.220.100 tcp www

serverfarm WEBFARM

persistent rebalance

inservice

NOW:

Is it possible to do something like this:

==================================================================================

vlan 221 client

ip address 10.20.220.2 255.255.255.0

gateway 10.20.220.1

!

vlan 220 server

ip address 10.20.220.2 255.255.255.0

<<<<<<<<<<<<Two VLANs with the same IP address are bridged together>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.

serverfarm WEBFARM

nat server

no nat client

real 10.20.220.10

inservice

real 10.20.220.20

inservice

!

vserver WEB

virtual 50.40.220.99 tcp www <<<<<<<<<< Place the IP address in a different subnet than the IP's in the serverfarm >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

serverfarm WEBFARM

persistent rebalance

inservice

<<<<<<<<On the MSFC place a static route to route the 50.40.220.99 address towards the CSM IP on vlan 221>>>>>>>>>.

ip route 50.40.220.99 255.255.255.255 10.20.220.2

Please if somebody knows if this is or is not possible it would be highly appreciated to hear your feedback.

I have this problem too.
