Looking for Setup Advice
I am looking for some advise for setting up a F5 Big-IP that can accomplish the following things.
I only have one public IP address but will be hosting muliple services. I am looking at setting up one VIP that's open to public with ports that are required then when hitting FQDN that it redirects to VIP that is hosting service. Example mysite1.domain.com goes to VIP 10.10.10.100, mysite2.domain.com goes to VIP 10.10.10.110, so on. Is this done by iRule, reverse proxy, or policy. What's the best pratice for setting something up like this. Thanks in advance for the help.
You need a first match strategy here. And while it is technically possible to forward to another VS, forwarding directly to the pool member is sufficient here unless you have reasons to forward to a secondary VS.
The flow is: client --> VS (with policy attached) --> pool (selected by policy)
