The Cisco CSS is case-sensitive when searching for this string.
When configuring the CSS 11000 and 11500, determine first if you need a server cookie string. If the string operation under the content rule is match-service-cookie, which is the default setting, this parameter must be configured. In this case the service cookie string is matched against the cookie contained in the HTTP header for load balancing decision.
If the string operation under the content rule is set to the hash method, this parameter is not needed. In order to select one of the available servers, the cookie contained in the HTTP header is mathematically processed using a hashing algorithm. If available, the hash algorithm assigna the connection carrying a certain cookie to the same server. This example focuses on the match-service-cookie case.
Note: Cookies are case sensitive.

Your "Note: Cookies are case sensitive." is probably the answer.
The rest is what I already saw in the CSS documentation.
Please note that this environment is already configured with dynamic cookies (valid for individual sessions only), as this is what the requirements are.
From the ACE module:
"Depending on client and server behavior and the sequence of frames, the same cookie value may appear in the standard HTTP cookie that is present in the HTTP header, Set-Cookie message, or cookie embedded in a URL. The actual name of the cookie may differ depending on whether the cookie is embedded in a URL or appears in an HTTP header. The use of a different name for the cookie and the URL occurs because these two parameters are configurable on the server and are often set differently. For example, the Set-Cookie name may be as follows:
In my case, I am using a CSS and it appears that this option of configuring the "secondary cookie" does not exist. And since the cookie is also case-sensitive, the CSS will not recognize the url-embedded cookie as the same one. THIS is what I am trying to confirm.
