Here's the gist of what I'm trying to achieve. I have a VIP setup for https, and the ssl cert is terminated on the server. A users goes to https://cnn.com; and I want that to be redirected to https://cnn.com/management.
Do you want to redirect requests for all pages on the domain or just the home page?

However, you'd look for "/" as the requested URL. Keep in mind that you'll want to cover the file name of the default document also (e.g. index.html, default.aspx).
It's not possible to do this unless you terminate SSL on the Big-IP. However, you can re-encrypt when the traffic leaves the Big-IP.
Think about redirect on your Server(s), if you dont want to termiate SSL on the ltm. Just keep it simple ;-)
It is best practice to handle TLS-traffic on the BIG-IP and re-encrypt. However, given that this is an old thread that deals with an outdated version of the LTM it's good to point out that many security standards would not allow its use.
Same principle applies to up-to-date versions, though.
