Hi Rob, By default ace cleans up the connection gracefully. When you take a rserver out of service(OOS) by issuing "no inservice" command, the following happens. • ACE tear down existing non-TCP connections to the server •It allow existing TCP connections to complete •It Disallow any new connections to the server So this is the best and only way you can gracefully shut down a rserver. However as you noticed, the connections were draining slowly which is directly related to how long the connection lives normally. If its a webserver and someone is browsing, then the connection will be kept alive on the rserver which is taken OOS So usually, when someone does a schedule maintenance, the rserver is taken OOS ahead of time so that all connections are depleted by the time the window starts. Keep in mind that this is not applicable to SSL connections. ACE resets all Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connections to a particular real server when you enter the no inservice command for that server. Also if dont care about the connection after a certain point then you can always kill then forcefully by issuing clear conn rserver serverfarm Hope this helps. If so please mark the question answered and rate it accordingly. Regards VK

The feature you want is SNI (server name indication) but it's not implmented yet and some browsers limitations make this feature unusable in production currently. Workarounds : 1 - Use a Subject Alternative Name certificate with both names 2 - Use a CNAME record in the DNS infrastructure, it may work (to be tested) 3 - make a single SSL Vserver, match the Host field in the HTTP headers and the send a redirection to the right name.
