Configuration/iRule for NFS traffic behind load balancer


Hey All,


I have a test NFS environment that is currently load balanced behind the F5. There is not HTTP profile configured, but we do have a fastl4 profile configured. The network that the NFS servers sit on are not directly connected to the F5, so in the F5 configuration we needed to enable source address translation for the proper routing. This has caused the issue where the NFS servers are only seeing the self IP's of the F5's and are not seeing the client IP address. Is there a way via configuration or irule to pass the client IP address along with the NFS traffic to the NFS server? I am looking to avoid creating a directly connected network and moving all the NFS servers if possible. I appreciate the help.


Thank you,


Ryan Kelly
