Service Route with Loopback

Service Route with Loopback

Hello Everyone,


we have a captive portal authentication with external radius server. Captive Portal is in redirect mode and we have the redirect source as a Loopback Interface in L3 Zone. We changed the Service Rotue Configuration based on Destination using loopback1.

It worked and everything is fine.

Now when we add another loopback (lets call it loopback2) then changed the service route configuration. All the other configuration is same as loopback1 interface and all the policies are correctly configured. However, PA still uses the original loopback1 to send the auth queries to external radius server. 

If we delete loopback1 the captive portal cannot be reached. 


Anyone has such kind of experience?


Thanks and Regards,
