My hosting provider, doesn't know how to bleed traffic on their load balancer.  Very sad.

Can someone send me a URL or the commands that show how to disable a server on the Cisco ACE, so existing connections are maintained, but new connections are sent to another server?

I haven't touched a Cisco load balancer in years.  I'm an F5 BigIP guy.

That would be this document (for the latest version of ACE):

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/services_modules/ace/vA2_3_0/configuration/slb/guide/slbgd.pdf

Page 2-16:
Gracefully Shutting Down a Server
You can shut down a real server gracefully by using the no inservice command in
either real server host or real server redirect configuration mode. This command
causes the ACE to reset all non-TCP connections to the server. For TCP
connections, existing flows are allowed to complete before the ACE takes the real
server out of service. No new connections are allowed.
Note The ACE resets all Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections to a particular real
server when you enter the no inservice command for that server.
The syntax of this command is as follows:
no inservice
For example, to gracefully shut down a real server (for example, for maintenance
or software upgrades), enter:
host1/Admin(config-rserver-host)# no inservice
