https redirect - maintenance page
I am new to irules so I need some help.
We have a HTTPS Virtual Server configured on the LTM with four web servers in the pool. The certificate is installed on the F5 (SSL Client profile). We have a requirement to redirect users to a maintenance page when all the web servers are down (web servers are monitored using a monitor at the pool level). I was looking at irules to accomplish this.
Looking around the forum's I found a link to an irule " http://devcentral.f5.com/wiki/default.aspx/iRules/HTTPS_passthrough_fallback_URL.html" which is exactly what I am trying to achieve
To test it, I applied the irule to the Virtual server and manually disabled all the servers in the pool. As expected the web requests were redirected to the maintenance website. However when I enabled one of the web servers and tried to access the website it does not come up, it just shows me a blank screen with a status saying its trying to connect...
Am i missing something?
Any help is greatly appreciated
