Fallback host used in HTTP profile for F5

Vendor

F5

Description

A fallback host redirect a user to a different page/URI. It is in most cases better to use an iRule to rewrite the request. Indeni will alert if fallback is used instead of an iRule.

Remediation Steps

It is in most cases better to use an iRule to rewrite the request. That way the user maintains the same URI and can hit refresh until the page is available again.

How does this work?

This alert uses the iControl REST interface to extract the http profiles with fallback hosts.

Why is this important?

Without Indeni how would you find this?

Login to the device's web interface and click on "Local Traffic" -> "Profiles" -> "Services" -> "HTTP". Then, for each of the listed profiles, verify if a fallback host has been configured.
