Hi All,

I am new to CSS LBs and to be honest they seem to be a bit of a pain to setup.

I've followed this document and got a working config of sorts http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/contnetw/ps789/products_configuration_example09186a0080093dff.shtml

Currently I have 3 servers all servicing 80 and 443 traffic.  So i've setup 6 'services' - 3 for port 80 and 3 for port 443.  All good.

Also setup 2 content rules, one for 80 and one for 443 - both have the same VIP which is how I want it configured

Finally I setup 2 Group rules, one for 80 and one for 443 - when I try and make the second  one active i get the error "An active source group with that address already exists"

I could give them different VIP addresses but the final config for this CSS will be servicing 8 different URLS and would mean I had to double the number of firewall NAT rules and generally add more complexity, which I don't want.

Not having much luck with Google... Can anybody help ?

Cheers !
