HI everyone

I need help with one configuration, I have a VS receiving the traffic with one pool member and automap enable, until this everything is great, but now we have a new route on the network, the problem is that we need to receive the traffic for the route A and send the response of that traffic using the route B, basicaly is to do a asymmetric connection, The backend server are not using the f5 like DGW for that the automap is enable, only the response had to be rerouted to the new route B.

How this can be posible?. Thanks for the help.

Have you seen the article below? Also see nPath routing:

Also if you have some HTTP manipulation or Advanced WAF /APM this may not work.

Please see what @Nikoolayy1  shared about nPath routing if the response packet is not returnd back to the LTM system.  If the packet IS returning to the LTM system but on a different VLAN then you will need to look into VLAN keyed connections - https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K13558
