Otherwise the request will not even get to the ACE.

On the ACE, simply create a class-map of type http to catch the host header

Also create a redirect serverfarm pointing to

Then link the 2 together inside a policy-map.

We can't rewrite a url except those ones contained in redirect messages from the server.
