After setting up our Spectrum OneClick Servers behind an F5 VIP the Webapp no longer launches
The VIP is setup as follows:
The OneClick tomcat redirects Webapp traffic to the Webtomcat port (Default: 9443 TCP). The Webtomcat port (9443) also needs to be
opened through the F5 load balancer.
The http://OneClickServer.acme.net:8443/spectrum/webapp will redirect to http://OneClickServer.acme.net:9443/spectrum/oneclickwebapp so both
ports will need to be opened through the F5.
Release : 10.4.x (NetOps 20.2.x)
Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER
Both the OneClick Tomcat port and Webtomcat port need to be open though the F5 loadbalancer.
The Webtomcat which runs webswing and launches the java console locally uses port
9443 by default. The OneClick webpage when launching the Webapp will redirect to port 9443 which
means that both the OneClick tomcat and the Webtomcat ports need to be routed through the F5
The Webapp can be accessed directly to test connectivity and see if the F5 is also permitting port 9443
If OneClick tomcat and Webtomcat are configured to use SSL, make sure to follow the steps to update the WebSwing configuration
