Probing Redirect Servers on ACE

Unanswered Question
Sep 17th, 2008

Does anyone has any idea on how to probe a redirect server. While doing the configuration the options for health monitoring / probing is not available.

I have this problem too.

You cannot probe a redirect server on ACE.

It was possible on CSS platform but Its not supported by ACE.

Thank you for your reply. So there is no way to verify if redirect is going to a live or a dead server??? is there no other way to cheat the ACE?

If you are using redirect server then I dont see a way to prevent it doing its job unless a certain condition (like availability) is met.

Idea is that when you are redirecting it to a different VIP then that VIP should have its associated FT conditions configured.

I have introduced an enhancement request to get this feature in a future release.


No guarantee.

But if this is feasible we will do it.
