BIG-IP DNS Resolution to actual server IP
I am using BIG-IP DNS for geographic based IP resolution of my proxy servers. If the DNS request comes from Site A, BIG-IP responds with the IP for proxy 1 ; Site B resolves to proxy 2 using Topology Records. This is the easy part.
I am NOT wanting client traffic between the users and the proxy to actually go through the BIG-IP. I am only wanting BIG-IP to effectively act as an intelligent DNS server. If the proxy server IP is actually 192.168.100.57, then that is what I need the BIG-IP to resolve to.
I tried using LTM Virtual Servers with the IP of the VS matching the IP of the Pool Member, i.e. the proxy server. Unfortunately, this caused issues where the Health Monitor would suddenly fail until it was removed and re-added to the LTM Pool.
I am currently running the Health Monitor in the DNS module and it seems to be working, however, I am needing to move the functionality to another vCMP but the same configuration is failing.
