I recently upgraded to A3(2.6) from A3(2.0) and I don't see the N/A option on the http probe "request method type".
It also has an asterisk * which means it's mandatory.
I tried to set up a new http probe for another farm I am creating and the probe shows status failed, although I can ping and telnet to the http server on port 80 from the ACE context. My probe is like that:
probe http http_probe_WWW
passdetect interval 60
expect status 200 200
My other http probes for other farms work ok after the upgrade and they are similar.
So my question is: Do I need to set the request method type or something else causes the probe to fail?
thanks a lot.
What you see is a problem with the GUI.
CSCtg78008 while creating http probe default method slected should be get as in CLI
But the request-method is not required.
So your config should work.
Do a 'show probe detail' to see the failure reason.
Get a sniffer trace as well.
