Rewrite host header to specific pool member

I've done basic host header rewrites rules in the past but I've just received an odd request that's beyond me. I'm scrapping together a solution from multiple posts but haven't got anything to pass yet.


Our developers want the F5 to receive the URL "" and rewrite the host header to reflect the specific pool member, after the node is selected by the LB algorithm. To the point, they want the client to send the GET with "" in the host header and the F5, serverside, to send a GET for "" in the header.



I've tried this with combinations of HTTP_REQUEST, LB_SELECTED, and HTTP_REQUEST_SEND but nothings working.



I'm assuming this can be done?
