Now make sure Magento expects you to be hitting Admin on a different URL, otherwise it will STILL redirect you back.
Fill in whatever domain/subdomain you want to use here:

Setting both these things will stop Magento from redirecting you back to the (loadbalanced cluster of) front-end webserver(s).
