Can LTM maintain LDAP transaction while switching between pool members?

Hi,

We have LDAP and LDAPS virtual servers residing on our LTM box. Based on my tests, if there is a connection & transaction to a server (ie. Domain Controller) managed by the F5(as a pool member), and the server and/or service fails, stops, terminates, etc. the F5 does not ‘shift’ the transaction to another server (ie. Domain Controller) for completion.

Looks to me what happens is the transaction fails?

Yeah. We were also facing same issue but did some minor correction to solve issue. Applied LDAP monitor to pool n added destination address persistence to vip. Till now no issue reported.

Thanks for your reply. Just wanted to confirm if that would achieve a condition to sustain a ongoing authentication transaction seamlessly on pool member down (like-statefull failover) ?
