Irule help

We have 2 IIS servers and 2 Apache servers and we are looking for is a way to separate two types of traffic (IIS versus Apache) and send the traffic  to different pools.while discarding everything else. It will probably make sense to create two variables; one to list the IIS URLs and the other to list the Apache URLs; as part of this as well.

I have created irule as below:

when HTTP_REQUEST {
 
if { [HTTP::host] equals "iistest.abc-hhc.com"} {
 use pool iis_hosting_pool
 
}

else if {[HTTP::host] equals "apachetest.abc-hhc.com"} {

use pool apache_hosting_pool

}

else {

discard

}


 
But this is giving syntax error.There will be multiple URLs that will fall in to each category.In version 4.x there is a variable concept, but not finding in 9.x.

Please help urgent.

If you want to assign a pool based on the http uri, why not just use an httpclass profile? That's exactly what they are there for.

Also if you have a list of hosts, you wouldn't use a normal variable, you'd probably want to store them in data group lists and then use a class match operation to find a match. Plenty of examples around, such as this: http://devcentral.f5.com/Community/GroupDetails/tabid/1082223/asg/50/aft/1167433/showtab/groupforums/Default.aspx
