HTTPS Probe using client cert

Unanswered Question

Our ACE configuration includes some services where the ACE is providing SSL offloading and also some other service where the ACE is loadbalancing of client SSL traffic going to back end Apache servers that terminate the SSL.

I am trying to create a HTTPS health probe, to check that various back end HTTPS sites are returning a WSDL file, using the Client Certificates that the Apache admins have provided.

I found an old thread (thread/2026940) from 2010 where someone was wanting to do the same type of thing but at the time it seems that the ACE didn't support this.

"the certificate can not be used for client certificate authentication for a HTTPS probe"

Does anyone know if this is still the case and/or have any recommendations on how to achieve this goal?

Hi Gerard,

I'm afraid the situation hasn't changed. You still cannot use a client certificate in a SSL probe
