Cookie sticky issue sending the server ip as part of the cookie

I have an issue where I have arrowpoint cookie configured and I have a cookie name also configured, but when I look in a trace I am seeing the servers private IP as part of the cookie.

This is what the cookie looks like,

snoopyonline=WQZNVQS192.168.1.1SYLR path=/

I have snoopyonline set as the arrowpoint-cookie name

My security group has opened and issue on the fact that we are sending the private IP.  How do I get rid of the IP address of my server in the cookie?

Cookie sticky issue sending the server ip as part of the cookie

Shday,

The CSS by default uses the IP address of the service for the cookie value. If you do not want to see the IP address of the service in the cookie  you can use the "string" command under the service to change it. Make sure each service has a unique string value.

Let me know if this helps?

Sample

service www-server1
  ip address 10.86.179.50
  keepalive type tcp
  string server1
  keepalive port 80
  active

service www-server2
  ip address 10.86.179.51
  keepalive type tcp
  keepalive port 80
  string server2

  active

Thank you

Jim
