ADDING A SYSTEM ID TO AN SMPP VIP

I need help on adding a system id to an SMPP VIP for authentication. My topology involves an ESME, two smpp firewalls which communicate via separate F5 vip's To the SMSC.

 

So, my topology looks like this.

 

ESME>>>1ST F5 VIP

 

1ST F5 VIP forwards t0 1st smpp firewalls.

 

1st smpp firewalls are configured to forward to second f5 VIP.

 

1ST SMPP FW>>>>>2ND F5 VIP

 

2nd F5 VIP load balances to 2nd smpp firewalls.

 

2nd f5 vip>>>2nd smpp firewalls.

 

2nd smpp firewalls are configured to forward to third f5 vip.

 

2nd smpp firewalls >>>>> third f5 vip.

 

third f5 vip load balances to SMSC.

 

3rd f5 vip>>>SMSC.

 

i used the irule based on this beautful irule on this thread. https://devcentral.f5.com/questions/balancing-smpp-traffic-based-on-recipient-address.

 

The irule used is listed in comment. The bind tranceiver message hits the 1st smpp firewall, and fails on hitting the second F5 VIP, as the second F5 VIP doesn't have the SYSTEM ID parameter configured.

 

How do i configure the system ID on the 2nd and third F5 VIP's.
