CSM-S failover problems.

We have 2 x 6509 with one CSM-S per switch. We have an Oracle mid-tiers/database setup and we are load-balancing to the mid-tiers. The CSM-S's are running in bridge mode.

When we run an automated script against the mid-tiers to retrieve a standard web page using ssl and then we failover the CSM-S it all works fine, there are a few failed connections and then it carries on.

However we then modify the script to retrieve the oracle login page from the mid-tiers and then we failover the CSM-S the connections die but never come back.

The difference is that retrieving he login page involves the mid-tiers talking to the database server on a different vlan which means this traffic must flow through the CSM-S (not load-balanced).

Is there anything obvious i should be looking at. I know i could look into one arm mode to bypass the CSM-S for this type of traffic but recommendation seems to be to avoid that.
