Can't crawl using Sharepoint Search or Fast Search
Our environment contain F5 LTM 3600, sharepoint 2010 with SSL header turn on to accomodate SSL termination on F5. But when adding the URL to Sharepoint Search or Fast Search it gives a time out trying to crawl the sharepoint sites.
Would like find out if there is any solution to the problem.
Which URL are you using, http or https? It's possible you may need to configure a virtual server on the local SharePoint server subnet and use host entries to direct the SharePoint servers to this internal VIP rather than the SSL VIP you've already created. Then you could enter your crawl targets as http sites. The instructions to do this are in the link hoolio provided above.
I am in the process of creating the Irule, in our environment, we are using ssl termination, web acceleration with sharepoint. SSL is going to terminate on F5, when looking at the Irule example who do we add the irule to.
The iRule should be added to the virtual server you created on the same subnet as the SharePoint servers. The SharePoint servers will need a host entry to point the site FQDNs to that virtual server address.
