When SSL offloading is done at F5 (SSL termination at loadbalancer), the redirect URL during authentication is replacing loadbalancer protocol (https) with http

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Access a protected URL using https
2. When challenged, provide user credentials and login
3. The final redirect URL is not https


POST /oam/server/auth_cred_submit HTTP/1.1

HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
Connection: close
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Location: http://HOST/obrar.cgi?cookie=xxxxxx
