Odd handling of a redirect?




BIG-IP 9.4.8 Build 355.0 Final



This is an SSL termination config. The virtual server at https:// resolves correctly to http://:7003 (single node in the pool).



No iRules configured



An http-wan-optimized-compress-caching profile (Parent) profile with all default settings except "Redirect Rewrite" set to "All" (same result if I use "Matching")






A link on the resulting page sends me to https://:80 which fails as expected. I've not run across this behavior before (51 virtual servers on this LTM alone). Have I just been lucky? I don't have a long history with the BigIP LTM.



Setting Redirect Rewrite to "None" sends to http:// (no SSL).



The javascript behind the page link says "'/path',_self);"

  • Hi Jon,



    Is the issue with a 30x redirect or a Javascript call? Can you use Fiddler2 or HttpFox to trace this and post the response headers or payload where the issue occurs?



  • Thanks for the reply, Aaron. I was OOO last week.



    Today I am able to pursue this matter again and I see ... the link is working properly. I am unaware of any changes made in my absence.



    Now I am dealing with another URL that performs a 302 temporary redirect and the BigIP is inserting an HTTPS url (this is not a SSL connection at the BigIP for this application). What do you suspect?










  • I have marked this RESOLVED.



    After reading I have set the Redirect Rewrite to "None" and all is working on the latest issue.



    Thanks, Jon
  • Had to reopen this... When I marked it resolved I was looking at a different LTM and environment... At least that mystery is gone 🙂

    here are the rows from HttpFox.
