Re: How do I create an SSL health check requesting a page instead of doing a SSL handshake only?

A standard SSL health check configuration with a URL is looking like:

server real myreal66 192.168.55.66

  port ssl

  port ssl keepalive

  port ssl url "HEAD /test.html"

This is going resulting in a L7 health check BUT the health check is doing an SSL handshake only and it is not going to send the HEAD request asking for /test.html. Please use the global command "no server use-simple-ssl-health-check". This should force the ServerIron to send the request after establishing the SSL connection with the real server.
