In the event that a load balancing virtual server of type HTTP or type HTTPS goes DOWN or is disabled, you can redirect requests to an alternate URL by using an HTTP 302 redirect. The alternate URL can provide information about the status of the server.
You can redirect to a page on the local server or a remote server. You can redirect to a relative URL or an absolute URL. If you configure a redirect to a relative URL consisting of a domain name with no path, the NetScaler appliance appends the path of the incoming URL to the domain. If you use an absolute URL, the HTTP redirect is sent to that URL with no modification.
At the command prompt, type:
set lb vserver Vserver-LB-1 -redirectURL http://www.newdomain.com/mysite/maintenance
