ACE SSL Termination and Layer 7

I have several CSS infrastructures and recently received an ACE for testing. I am working through converting the configurations to the ACE and have some issues. The simplest explanation of what I am trying to do is this:

https://xxx.yyy.zzz/abc* -> realserver 10.10.10.10 port 81

https://xxx.yyy.zzz/def* -> realserver 10.10.10.10 port 82

https://xxx.yyy.zzz/ghi* -> realserver 10.10.10.10 port 83

https://xxx.yyy.zzz/jkl* -> realserver 10.10.10.20 port 81

https://xxx.yyy.zzz/mno* -> realserver 10.10.10.20 port 82

etc.

I am able to do it without SSL termination (using port xxx.yyy.zzz on port 80). I have also tried creating a separate realserver/serverfarm for SSL termination and sending to another IP on the ACE for the Layer 7 piece without success. Is there some technique or configuration options I am missing to get this working? Is if even possible within one context? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

John Spannagel

Re: ACE SSL Termination and Layer 7

before going for L7 with ssl, could you try to configure a simply SSL policy-map and see if that works.

Normally, if you have everything working for http, all you have to do is create a new class-map for the HTTPS traffic, then configure the same policy as for http and simply add the ssl proxy-server

ie:

policy-map multi-match SLB1

class VIP-122-80

loadbalance vip inservice

loadbalance policy SF_Linux1_80

loadbalance vip icmp-reply

class VIP-122-443

loadbalance vip inservice

loadbalance policy SF_linux1_80

loadbalance vip icmp-reply

ssl-proxy server CSS11503-2

Re: ACE SSL Termination and Layer 7

After some more thorough testing, it does work as expected. I did what you suggested but has some minor issues, however turning on "persistence-rebalance" resolved all my issues.

Thanks a lot for your time.
