Hi @Satriaji 

Are you saying you want send traffic from one virtual server to a FQDN pool member, that happens to also be a virtual server on the same BIG-IP? 
If so, there is a supported way to do that called Vip targeting Vip, and you use an iRule or a Local Traffic Policy to do that.

Hi JRam,

Yeah, the VS that using the fqdn member, the fqdn member as IP VS in the same bigip.

So, I have 3 VS. Called VS_A, VS_B, VS_C.

The configuration is :

VS A (IP VS : 10.1.1.x:443) member (a,b,c,d)

VS B (IP VS: 10.1.1.x:80) member (a,b,c,d)

VS C (IP VS: 172.x:80) member fqdn that resolve (ip vs A & ip VS B 10.1.1.x) Using rewrite configuration. 

The rewrite configuration is :

Type : Request

Client URI : http://172.x/ (IP VS_C)

Server URI :


If the VS C created in the same box, its cannt running, but if the VS_C i create in the different box using same configuration, its works. 


How to resolve it ?

I'm not sure I understand what your goals are, and how this configuration is serving them. Can you take a step back and state your goals for each VIP and what traffic from what source needs to be managed?
