> Igor, that works now using the above syntax :) A question though is there anyway to tell NGINX to redirect based on the proxied hostname ? If we had pm01 ... 100 then I would need to add 100 proxy_redirect statements or can it be done with a clever single line ?

Currently nginx does not support variables in the first parameter,
so you have to add 100 proxy_redirect statements.

The other way is to configure backends to use single name as main server name
to use it in redirects.
