I am using Apache 2.2 in front of my JBOSS 5.2 application server in a cluster configuration . The two nodes of the cluster configuration resides on different host . This configuration is hosted on Linux servers .
In this configuration I am using a BIG IP (F5) Load Balancer , which sits in between the Web server and Jboss application servers .
In case of failover of one of the application server , the load balance is working fine and is routing the request from one node of cluster to the other node . But my apache web server is not able to route the request to working node of cluster and gives the error that the application server being requested is not rachable. However when I restart the apache server it seems to work fine and I am able to access the application .
It seems that apache is caching the the application server url and cache is not getting refreshed when I try to access the web server URL after the failover occurs .
Below is the httpd.conf configuration that I am using :
Please correct me If I am wrong somewhere . Any help would be appreciated . Thanks ..!!
