ACE Sharepoint Setup/Keep getting IIS Splash Page

I have setup load-balancing on an ACE 4710 for HTTP for Sharepoint 2010. The Server Admin says that the IIS server will recognize the right site by DNS name. Problem is I have no clue how to make sure the servers get the DNS name passed to them. They says this is for a multi-homing setup so that we can run multiple sites using the same VIP to the same Serverfarm. How do I do this? I keep getting the IIS splash page since the real server cannot determine the IIS site that I am supposed to access.

ACE Sharepoint Setup/Keep getting IIS Splash Page

Hi Dino

I don't know your exact implementation but if you have simple L4 loadbalancing, there nothing you should do on ACE. Webserver must be configured properly. I don't really know IIS, but here is an example for Apache

NameVirtualHost *:80

DocumentRoot /www/example1

DocumentRoot /www/example2

With this configuration on Apache and this on ACE :

class-map match-any vcd-https

  2 match virtual-address tcp eq https

rserver host VH

  ip address


serverfarm host VH

  rserver VH


policy-map type loadbalance first-match VH

  class class-default

    serverfarm VH

policy-map multi-match VH-L4

  class VH

    loadbalance vip inservice

    loadbalance policy VH

( - is real IP of Web server and - is VIP and both and are resolved to it)

Everything works perfectly, as ACE doesn't change Hostname field in GET request (by default) and it's web server responsibility to redirect this particular request to proper virtual host.

Application owner was incorrect on DNS name an caused confusion. This was a non-issue
