Oracle Traffic Director In Maintenance Mode Using A Response File, One Out Of Two Times A 503 Error Code Is Returned (Doc ID 2152786.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 09, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Traffic Director - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : version, Configuration

When configured the server pool maintenance in the OTD console using a custom response HTML file , it returns a standard 503 error in every second attempt.

The first time it returns the custom HTML page, the second time standard 503 code and so on.

This is observed in Firefox browser.
When accessed using IE and Chrome, it always returns the 200 and custom response file.

However, it should always return the custom response file as configured.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Enable maintenance for origin server pool with a custom response file.
2. It should return custom response file for every hits.
3. But with Firefox browser, it returns a standard 503 error for every alternative request.
4. When using Chrome and IE, it always returns the custom HTML page.
