Troubleshooting HTTP to HTTPS redirects


Product: LoadMaster

Version: Any

Platform: Any

Application: Any

Question/Problem Description:

Why isn't HTTP traffic redirecting to HTTPS?

Steps to Reproduce:  
Error Message:  
Defect Number:  
Enhancement Number:  
Cause: A port 80 VS on the same IP as your 443 VS isn't configured to redirect.
  • Navigate to your 443 VS > Advanced Properties > click Add Port 80 Redirector VS.
  • If you already have a port 80 VS configured, expand Advanced Properties in the Port 80 VS > Not Available Redirection Handling. In the fields listed, configure a 301 Moved Permanently Status Code and a Redirect URL of https://%h%s. The "%h" portion will preserve the hostname, while the "%s" portion will preserve anything after the hostname.
