Help to move a simple CSS design to an ACE

Hi, I have a production system on a CSS11503, and the service will be moving to an ACE shortly. I'm nost sure how to convert a couple of "features" of the CSS configuration.

1. WebDAV support: I had to add the extra HTTP methods;

http-method parse RFC2518-methods

http-method parse user-defined-method POLL

http-method parse user-defined-method SEARCH

http-method parse user-defined-method SUBSCRIBE

http-method parse user-defined-method BMOVE

http-method parse user-defined-method BCOPY

http-method parse user-defined-method BDELETE

http-method parse user-defined-method BPROPPATCH

Do I still need to and how do I?

2. The stickiness: It is done with an arrowpoint thingy.

content HTTP-80

add service Online-1-80

add service Online-2-80

add service Online-3-80

add service Online-4-80

protocol tcp

port 80

vip address x.x.x.x

advanced-balance arrowpoint-cookie

balance aca


How do I acheive the same with the ACE.

I also intend to use HTTPS in the front, talking to HTTP backend. The balancing should not be affected by this, as the ACE can see the cookies etc.

Anyone able to guide me on this setup.

1. not required with ACE

2. The equivalent of arrowpoint-cookie in ACE is cookie insert.
