Load Master - Content Rules - default rule - clarification.



We are using KEMP LM version Vers:7.1-18b.

I'm trying to setup a content matching rule in order to troubleshoot a particular problem.

We have two real servers behind the virtual service with scheduling method set to round robin.

I want a certain request that are coming in with a specific cookie to go to a specific server say server 1. Rest of the traffic should continue to load balanced between the two real servers as per round robin.

In order to achieve the above - I enable content switching on the virtual service and then add a rule that matches the header cookie and assign it to server 1.

my questions - do I need to assign the default rule to server 2 or should I apply the default rule to both the servers, given I want the remaining traffic (other then the one coming in with the specific cookie) to go to both the servers?

You will need to assign the default rule to both servers in order to continue to load balance between the two real servers.
