Serverfarm state is Out of services, still the associated VIP accepts connections.

Why ?

no....it's not related to the sticky entry.

If the server is down, the sticky entry is removed.


The ace may still accept the TCP connection if it is configured as L7....in other words, if you do any data matching/lookup (like urls, cookies, ...)

But the connection will be closed once the client sends data since ACE has no server to forward the request to.


This is expected.

Yes we are using src IP sticky based on regexp, I will try the clear command later.


Is this a known and reported bug ?


Thanks
