We have a web app that still uses frames. The web URL is HTTPS, but 1 of the frames uses HTTP. I need for a user to stick to the same server for both frames or it screws up the application.

I am load balancing to 2 servers over HTTP and HTTPS using a group for client NATing. I have tried the advanced-loadbalancing ssl on both HTTP and HTTPs services, and I tried advanced-loadbalancing arrowpoint-cookie. on both. Neither way worked.

How do i get the CSS to stick to 1 server for both frames?

If you have 2 rules, this is not going to be possible unless you terminate SSL traffic on the CSS SSL module.

If you do not terminate SSL traffic on the CSS, I would suggest to combine your HTTPS and HTTP rule into a single one.

Simply remove one of the rule and in the remaining one, remove the port command.

All traffic will be handled by that single rule.

You can then implement 'advanced-balance srcip'

We are NOT terminating SSL on the CSS, and your suggestion is exactly what we did to fix the issue. Thanks for your response.
