What version of nsx are you using ?
Can you give some more detail on what the setup look like ?
Am running version 188.8.131.52000.
What setup details do you need?
Basicly it looks something like: www --> NSX Edge --> Server on port 80/443 --> pool members on port 80
Ive done many setups like this before without issue but I seems to have missed something this time as its not working as intended. I suspect there might be a Firewall blocking me but I'm not sure how to test this, which is what I'm requesting tips on.
Running nsx-v or nsx-t ?
When you look on the server, do you see the request coming in ?
Got it to work! There was a Firewall rule on the pool members that blocked the connection but not the healthchecks. Anyway its working now yay
Btw while we are here, do you know if its possible to stop/start traffic to a specific pool member with a Service Monitor?
Im trying to have it start/stop traffic based on GET response from www.someurl/tostartortostopthatisthebigquestion.
Thanks for your help so far kind sir, have a nice day, cheers!
You could do something like
Update the file that need to be checked dynamically. i.e GET /healtcheck.php (normaly it will return something like 'UP'')
You can let the health check check for 'UP
Create a Service Monitor Step 13
If the file returns 'DOWN' the healthcheck will mark the member as down.
Thank you i believe this is exactly what I need. Cheers
