When a virtual server has priority groups and connection limit configured, if the connection limit is reached and is increased while the member is limited, then subsequent connections will be reset rather than allowed.
New connections are reset without being able to send traffic.
Using priority groups and a non-zero connection limit, with one of the following load balancing methods: least-connections-member, least-sessions, ratio-member, ratio-least-connections-member, ratio-session. The issue occurs when the connection limit is adjusted higher when the connection limit is reached on the high-priority pool.
If it is feasible to adjust the priorities, adjust the connection limit to its initial value, and adjust the priority groups so that the traffic currently on the limited pool drains out. When the pool has no connections, increase the limit to restore the correct priorities.
Make pool member eligible for load balancing if its not connection limited after modifying its connection limit.
