HowTo: Apache SSL webserver load balance to splunkweb servers?

How do I configure Apache with SSL that will load balance the request to two splunkweb servers:

 Browser --> SSL --> Apache --> SSL (!) --> SplunkWeb Server 1
                            |
                            +-> SSL (!) --> SplunkWeb Server 2

I can not figure out what need to be set in web.conf on the two SplunkWeb Servers

You probably dont.

You'd use haproxy with session affinity.

If you need the SSL to terminate at the splunk servers, and there's no NAT involved you can stick on the source IP, otherwise look here

Without session affinity, the next (probably ajax) request would hit the other splunk instance and be rejected for not being logged in
