CSM vserver ping problem

When I create a vserver with type "any" I am unable to ping the vserver. That is, the following virtual server IP cannot be pinged.

vserver xyz

virtual a.b.c.d any

serverfarm xyz

inservice

But the following one can:

vserver xyz

virtual a.b.c.d tcp www

serverfarm xyz

inservice

Is there any workaround? I have tried using the VSERVER_ICMP_ALWAYS_RESPOND 1. But that does not fix it.

Thanks

Re: CSM vserver ping problem

Raja,

Does your server's firewall block the ICMP packets?

Re: CSM vserver ping problem

using any the icmp request will be sent to the real server (as you loadbalance every protocol)

using www the icmp request will be proceed directly by the loadbalancer

So if your server can't reply to the icmp it is possible that when using any you won't have any response.
