Have you made your context a member of resource class Normal?

Does your policy-map for loadbalance use the sticky-serverfarm statement?

It would be helpful if you could post the whole configuration.

When you use cookie-insert function, ACE creates a static cookie. Correct command to view static cookies in sticky DB is

"show sticky database static"

Run the above command and see if you see any sticky entries in the database.

If you still dont see any entries then post the complete config.

you need to assign sticky resources to your context before you can start using it.

Use the following command to see if you have allocated sticky resources

switch/Admin# show np 1 me-stats "-slb -v" | i Stick

Num Active Sticky Entry: 1 0

Num Active Reverse Sticky Entry: 0 0

Free Sticky Entry Count: 944765 0
