Ambiguous real server status

Under the Real Time Statistics page, the Real Servers may show that status of Ambiguous.

This is because the Real Server is being used on multiple Virtual Services,
under one of the Virtual Services the Real Server is passing the health check
but on another Virtual Services the Real Server is failing the health check
in the screenshot below, the Real Server has passed the health check on port 443 but not port 80.

This is because the Real Server is used on multiple Virtual Services, and:

  • In one Virtual Service, the Real Server is passing the health check, but;
  • On another Virtual Service, the Real Server is failing the health check.

In the screenshot below, the Real Server has passed the health check on port 443 but not port 80. As a result of this, the statistics page cannot indicate that the Real server is truly up or truly down and shows it as Ambiguous instead.

There is a similar status under the menu Real Servers.

It should read as Status Enabled.
The Real Servers screen displays a status of Disabled, Enabled, or Partially Enabled.

Note: This status does not reflect the health check. It means the Real Server is administratively enabled or disabled.

If none of the Real Servers are administratively disabled, the status should be Enabled.

It should read as Status Partially Enabled.
If one of the Real Servers is administratively disabled on one Virtual Service but is still enabled on another, the Status should be Partially Enabled.
