SSL communication between F5 VIP and SHC

Path Finder

I have a SHC consisting of 3x SHs with https enabled.

are there any steps I need to do from Splunks end to enable a specific domain name forwarding from F5 to Splunk?

for example user goes to https://shc/ and it should direct it to vip ip which is turn will pick one of the 3 SHs and direct traffic to it.

Sadly this is not working.

@ialahdal  If SHC instances are using the self-signed certs they might need to be trusted on F5 VIP.

Similarly check if SSL enabled on F5 VIP and having the right cert installed matching etc.

There is no action required on Splunk end as long as you are able to reach out individual SH instances via https.
