    Distributed Calls and SSL

    This is probably no longer an issue but on one of those ancient 4.5 sites running on load balancing, forcing SSL messed up with distributed calls with an "Error refreshing a node in the distributed list" message related to the redirection of cacheRefresher.asmx

    In case this helps someone still dealing with legacy Umbraco sites, our solution was to setup 2 URL rewrite rules:

    <rule name="Ignore HTTPS Web Service" enabled="true" stopProcessing="true">
            <match url="^umbraco/webservices/cacheRefresher.asmx" ignoreCase="false" />
            <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll" trackAllCaptures="false">
            <action type="None" />
        <rule name="Force HTTPS" enabled="true">
            <match url="(.*)" ignoreCase="false" />
                <add input="{HTTPS}" pattern="off" />
            <action type="Redirect" url="https://{HTTP_HOST}/{R:1}" appendQueryString="true" redirectType="Permanent"  />

    This allowed calls cacheRefresher.asmx to continue responding on HTTP and therefore to work.
