I can ping the ip addresses of the vlan and access via management, the real-servers are Active along with the VIP service (ie. show service-policy) but I cannot ping the VIP interface and traces do not show any traffic hitting it because the 6500 the ACE (vc4710ace-mz.A1_8_0a) is connecting to has no ARP entry for the VIP.
It's in One-Arm mode; one gig-link to core, vlan 141.
I've attached the config.
Anyone got any ideas what I'm missing, please?
You vip is configured with a netwmask
10 match virtual-address 10.214.40.241 255.255.254.0 tcp any
since it is not a host vip it will not get in the arp table of the switch.
if you configure as:
10 match virtual-address 10.214.40.241 25 tcp any
you will get an arp entry.
If you want to treat the vip as a network then you would need to assign an alias ip address to int vlan 141 and add a static route on 6500 to point to the alias ip as next hop for that network.
But looking at your config I would guess you simply need to change the vip to a host address.
