Cisco Content Switch Module Configuration.

Last Modified: 2012-05-09

I am runnig CSM ver 4.3(4) latest CSM Software on WS-C6513 , IOS (12.2(18)SXF8) I had Configured CSM as below:

vlan 170 client // Routed VLAN
  description *** CSM Client VLAN ***
  ip address
 vlan 172 server // Layer 2 VLAN & its configured on PIX Firewall.
  description *** CSM Servers VLAN ***
  ip address
  gateway // Firewall Interafce
probe HTTP http
  description *** P8_Application_Engine ***
  port 80
  nat server
  no nat client
  predictor leastconns
  description *** P8_Content_Engine ***
  failaction reassign
  health retries 3 failed 30
probe HTTP
sticky 1 netmask timeout 180
  sticky-group 1
  serverfarm CONTENT_ENGINE
  description *** VIP_Content_Engine ***

interface Vlan170
 description **** CSM Client VLAN ****
 ip address
 no ip proxy-arp
 glbp 170 ip
 glbp 170 priority 99
 glbp 170 preempt
 glbp 170 load-balancing host-dependent

The VLAN 170 Configured as Routed VLAN Interface & Defualt Gateway for VLAN 170 is

The VLAN 172 is Layer 2 VLAN where is routed to firewall & all Servers member of this VLAN as (VLAN access 172)

The Porblem is that if configured the above I am able to ping the Virtual IP but I can not open Port 80 & I had test by run (telnet 80) but no luck.
when I ping The VIP the Servers ( & are replaing but I am not able to open port 80 http using Virtual Address(VIP).

1. from the test machine I am able to Open Port 80 for the reals Servers ( /,
2. There is  static route configured to route all traffic (
to the PIX firewall.
3. & there was no  any logs indicte the problem
