Hi, i'm new to LoadMaster but i've been able to successfully setup a Hyper-V virtual appliance and configured one HTTP/HTTPS virtual service with port 80 redirection, two real servers, re-encryption, etc.
My question is about the Admin Web UI traffic... I know that OOTB the LoadMaster Admin Web UI is NOT reachable via HTTP... you must connect to HTTPS://my.ip.addr.ess
So I created a simple virtual service to redirect traffic from LoadMaster's Admin Web UI port 80 to port 443 and I am now able to type http://nlb.mydomain.int in the browser and be automatically redirected to https...
My concern is whether this is advisable to do.
Assume the following config:
- the virtual appliance has only one interface/IP
- nlb.mydomain.int is configured in DNS and points to LM's IP.
- I've replaced the Administrative SSL cert for the Admin Web UI with one that was generated by my internal Certificate Authority
It's all working nicely, i'm just concerned whether this setup can create any issues i'm not aware of.
thanks in advance.
