Session cookie generated on the server

Am I missing out on a feature completly? What I need is the following:

When a server initiates a conversation with a client, it assigns a session id and sends a cookie or an URL rewrite. The client's response must go back to the same server based on the session id. The most ordinary thing, I'd say, but can you do it with a CSS?

With cookies, you can either define a string and send it to a particular server (e.g. "ServiceA" to Server1). Or you can hash on a cookie and load balance to server.

The first does not work for me because the string is variable (session id). The second does not work because the hash does not necessarily result in the server that originated the conversation.

What am I missing??

Thanks, Igi.

Re: Session cookie generated on the server

you CAN'T do this with the CSS.

The CSM and the localdirector are able to do it but NOT the CSS.

I would suggest to use arrowpoint cookie.

[you can use it even if the server also generates its own cookie].
