Accessing a specific node behind proxy/lb

We have confluence DC setup behind a proxy load balancer like this

# Confluence DC Cluster
<Proxy balancer://confluencedc>
BalancerMember http://confnode1:8098 route=1
BalancerMember http://confnode2:8098 route=2
BalancerMember http://confnode3:8098 route=3
ProxySet stickysession=ROUTEID

I am looking for a config where I can access a specific node. Is that possible?

Hi @asif_iqbal ,

You can access the node with the port number - http://confnode3:8098.  If you access the node directly, the request will not go through LB.

The routing algorithm depends the node to which the requests will be redirected to. A simple option would be to comment all the nodes except confnode3 in LB, if you want to test something. With single node, if you access the common url, your request will be redirected to confnode3. 

There is no direct access to a node from my browser. I need to hit the proxy server first. Only proxy server has access to the nodes.

Did you try with the node IP and port? Network team should be able to help you to access the application via node

We had it designed that way so Akamai (allowed IPs) -> can be only way to access confluence. I think may be we need a config on proxy server itself to connect to a node. I added a new ProxyPass to connect to a single node does not work since context path /confluence is tied to connection through LB. So I tried a second context path and confluence cluster does not like multiple context paths. So need another option. Possibly additional vhosts per node with a another dns entry?
