Can a Sorry server be a content rule?

Hello

I want to direct all my traffic to server A and if that fails I want to send all my traffic to server B. This I can do by directing all traffic to service A and having server B defined as a primarySorryServer. If these two fail I want my SecondarySorry Server to refer to a content rule. Is this possible?

Thanks!

not directly.

If you're talking http, you can have your secondary server setup as a redirect to another content rule.

But it only works for http.

thanks Gilles for your reply.

I am using http so what you suggest sounds perfect. Can you give me an idea of the config please?

there is sample config for exactly what you need.

You can find it at :

Configuring an HTTP Redirect to a Different VIP on the Same CSS 11000 or 11500

Hi Gilles

Thanks again for the info. I have had a look at the cisco document and I cannot understand what they propose. The document is very short and does not adequately explain what it is doing.

Do you have any clearer examples?

Donagh,

indeed this document is not very clear but we can use it as an example.

There are 2 vips - 10.10.10.10 and 10.10.10.20.

They have a redirect service to send the traffic to 10.10.10.20.

All you have to do in your case, assuming your content rule looks similar to 10.10.10.10 in the example, is add the service redirect as a sorry server to the content rule 10.10.10.10.

What it does is if all your services go down, redirect the traffic to the 2nd content rule 10.10.10.20

Regards,

Gilles.
