I created a pilot RDS 2012 R2 environment with 5 servers. we are using F5 for load balancing.
We have the Webaccess and the GW in the DMZ, and the CB, SH and Licensing servers on the internal LAN
We have 2 firewalls, External, DMZ, Internal, as well as 2 External F5, and 2 Internal.
RDS is working fine, but I have a question, We have a VIP for the SH and another VIP for the CB, when I connect internally or externally, I see that the traffic is going to the CB VIP and then to the SH server's IP address instead of the SH VIP!
Is this a normal behavior? Shouldn't the connection go to the CB VIP and then to the SH VIP and then the F5 should forward the request to the SH server's IP?
