We are setting our new sharepoint environment up on our new ACE appliance. We have setup sticky sessions and traffic seems to be flowing properly but we are running into a problem when we take one of the nodes out of service. Traffic doesn't fail over to the other server without restart IE or whatever browser we are using. It seems to be stuck to that one server and wont transisiton to the other. I'm not sure if that is by design but it will start working if the server is put back in service. We have waited up to five minutes but it still doesn't work. We have also decreased the sticky timeout to 1 minute as a test but that didnt help either and have also configured persistant rebalance.
parameter-map type http HTTP-PARAM
set header-maxparse-length 8092
sticky http-cookie serverfarm1 serverfarm1_cookie
cookie insert browser-expire
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
