The Web Server is configured to reverse proxy the URI /testpages to two Origin Servers, as shown in the following line from the <vs>-obj.conf:
NameTrans fn="map" from="/testpages" name="reverse-proxy-/testpages" to="http:/testpages"
Route fn="set-origin-server" sticky-cookie="JSESSIONID" route-cookie="JROUTE" sticky-param="jsessionid" route-hdr="Proxy-jroute" rewrite-location="true" rewrite-content-location="true" server="origin1:1234" server="origin2:1234"
When one of the Origin Servers goes offline, the RP notices this and marks it as offline. This is shown in the error log:
However, when the Origin Server comes back online, it's not noticed by the RP and requests are not directed to this Origin Server.
