You can setup a pool which points to a 'fake' node/service, then use the
fallback host option in your pool config to redirect all the clients to the
https, since the node will be deemed as down to the BigIP. I use this for
several things, and have had great luck.

Subject: [load balancing] HTTP to HTTPS redirect
I am trying to LB two MS-IIS servers, and use the SSL proxy on a F5 BIGIP
The SSL proxy works fine, and I am having the F5 "redirect all" under the
All of the http links being served are being rewritten to https links.
Except for one thing.
The web page serves up a java applet, and that applet creates a menu
The links in that bar all point to " http://foo.bar.com <http://foo.bar.com>
". I can't edit the java applet.
I don't have a virtual server on port 80 for http://foo.bar.com
Is there a simple way to redirect all incoming http requests to
<http://foo.bar.com/somepath/something> to https and hit the SSL proxy on
the F5 - without losing the path information?
The F5 doesn't allow you to build a proxy and point it to another proxy on
the same unit.
