CSS - Simple configuration does not work

CSS - Simple configuration does not work

See configuration details and some show commands below:

Client PCs can ping the virtual ip address of 10.253.1.101, but can not http to it.

Client PCs can http to the individual web servers on their ip addresses:

http://10.253.10.108:8180/ and http://10.253.10.109:8180/ .

Any idea what I am missing here?

Thanks in advance for your help

Mohan

Re: CSS - Simple configuration does not work

what's the default gateway of the servers ???

Make sure the response from the servers goes back to the CSS.

One trick is to configure client nat

ie:

group client

vip address 10.253.10.239

add destination service LB_Test_1

add destination service LB_Test_2

active

Re: CSS - Simple configuration does not work

Hi,

In the services also, you need to add you port number 8180 .

Re: CSS - Simple configuration does not work

the port number is not required.

You need it only if you want to do port translation and use a different port on the servers then on the vip.

Re: CSS - Simple configuration does not work

Thanks Giles. That worked like a charm. I think you deserve a rating of 5 as you even provided the actual commands, in fact I did not even have to type them out, I just copied and pasted them line by line.

Sorry to get back to you this late. I was busy on another project and this was put on the backburner.

I have a related question, if I may ask:

Firstly when I attempt to run my application through the web interface, I can bring up the application login screen without a problem.

However I have to enter the details twice “enter the network password for site 10.253.1.101” (this is the content switch VIP). If I enter the User Name and Password a second time I can then login to the application.

(This is a Windows 2000 PC running IE 6.0.2800.1106).

For the purposes of Load Testing my application I have a number of machines installed within our test network (10.253.1.x)

These machines have Windows 2003 Server R2 with SP2 installed.

Again I can bring up the login screen for the application and I have to enter the User name and Password twice before getting any further.

Unfortunately at this point the application becomes unusable as required JSP files fail to be downloaded from the Server.

I'm currently looking at various settings within IE 6 (Security, Pop-Blockers, Proxy Server configuration.) to try and overcome this.

Do you have any thoughts on why I need to enter the User name and password twice?

Thanks

Re: CSS - Simple configuration does not work

Mohan,

you probable need stickyness.

Try to add the following commands under the content rule.

url "/*"

advanced-babalnce arrowpoint

Now I am testing some advanced configurations and my following configuration is not working.

Relevant configuration of 1 one of the CSS as follows:

I have tried launching a browser and connecting via the two load balanced URL's

http://10.253.1.101:8180/prweb/PRservlet

http://10.253.1.102:8280/prweb/PRServlet

Neither of these links currently work - I get a 'The page cannot be displayed' error message

However, I know that all four Tomcat nodes are up and working as I can login to the PRPC application via any of the direct links;

http://10.253.10.108:8180/prweb/PRServlet

http://10.253.10.108:8280/prweb/PRServlet

http://10.253.10.109:8180/prweb/PRServlet

http://10.253.10.109:8280/prweb/PRServlet

The above configuration works by modifying the url statement from

url "/prweb/PRServlet/*"

to

url "/*"

Thanks in advance for your help

Mohan
