I have a VIP that terminates ssl connections, and
the real servers are http on port 8080. There are three separate apps
involved, example is site/inspector, site/reporter, and site/admin.
I do not have logins for the separate apps, but all three are reachable
and apparently acted as they should, and all was going well.
Today I was informed that the reporter app does not work as it should.
Users can log into the app, and can generate reports. The problem is
that if they choose the export option (the app will allow one to export
the reports via csv file), the export fails. I did a client side sniff just
to see if the app was doing something on other than port 8080, and it
does not appear to. Obviously with the encryption you can't see the payload,
but once again I was just looking for connections on other than 8080,
as that would not have been subject to the url rewrite. I do plan on doing
a server side sniff (behind the VIP) tomorrow.
The symptom when the export fails is that when you hit the ok button,
the "save file" box opens, but is immediately followed by a stop box that
says something like "cannot find the file specified". I also had a user
do a direct connect to one of the reals and do the same thing, and everything
worked fine. The sniffer capture once again did not show anything other than
http on port 8080. But the "save file" box popped up, the user selected the
path and was able to save the report.
This is set up on ACE modules in a 6509 chassis. I can certainly provide
more detail, but was kind of hoping that someone has seen this symptom
and might be able to point me in a direction. Other than that, everything else
with this VIP/these apps seems to be working fine.
Thanks for any advice - chris
