I have a problem whereby I need to allow my real servers to ping the Server-Side ACE interface. Is this explicitly denied? I have the VIP up and running OK but my server can't ping the Server-Side interface (which is it's gateway).
Thanks in advance,
I think You should apply policy REMOTE_MGMT_ALLOW_POLICY to interface vlan 56 or globally.
Currently it's only applied to vlan 55 which is the client side interface.
If You don't want telnet/ssh access from server side, then You need to prepare another class and policy with only icmp traffic allowed.
Your management policy is not configured under server side vlan
Do the following and you are good to go
interface vlan 56
service-policy input REMOTE_MGMT_ALLOW_POLICY
