Help with CSS11151 URL Stickness

I am trying to use the "advance-balance url" feature to configure client stickiness on my CSS11151. My URLs look like this: 199501006120380815&javascript=true&jsessionid=199501006120380815&sd=11/21/2001 &ed=12/05/2001&location=RFL1&size=H&template=1&rciid=&iceid=544&lp=1&resultcount=5 &locale=430

The part I want to use for stickiness is the "sessionid=" section in the beginning of the URL.

I have configured my content rules as follows:

content labstuff

add service testweb01

add service testweb02

add service testweb03

add service testweb04

vip address

advanced-balance url

string prefix "sessionid="

string eos-char "&"

protocol tcp

port 80

url "/*"


Unfortunately this doesn't see to assign any stickiness (I still get all four servers in subsequent requests); I have tried using the "string process-length" command in place of the "string eos-char" command but the results are the same. Issuing a "show rule" command displays exactly what I would expect.

Can anybody give me any ideas on what I am doing wrong, or how I might troubleshoot this? Thanx.
