Re: Redirect message

Sorry,

the test02 service ip address is 10.253.20.18

Re: Redirect message

You simply need to create a service for that sorry server and call it in content rule using Primarysorryserver command

!--- This is the server to which you want to default

!--- if the primary fails.

service sorry

ip address 10.253.20.x

keepalive type tcp

port 80

active

content Hello-SSL

vip address 10.253.20.14

add service test01

add service test02

primarySorryServer sorry <-- call it when else fails

sticky-inact-timeout 35

Re: Redirect message

Hi,

What you can do is to configure a primary sorry server, that can show the page "Page down" or something like this.

(But if you can have a third server for that, we can use it to handle the traffic instead to show the message)

This is the link to configure the sorry server.

If you dont have a third server, there is not way to make the CSS to send a message or something like that telling the customer that the "servers are down".

Also you can configure the sorry server to do a redirect to another domain if you want. This is the link that explain how to configure a redirect service. (the content rule must be layer 5).

hope this help.
