ACE: one-to-many port loadbalancing

Answered Question
Jan 23rd, 2008

I need to have the ACE do a kind of port load balancing within each real server in the server farm. This amounts to one incoming port and many outgoing port. Currently I can only see how to set one outbound port, how can I set many. The Alteons can do it, surely the ACE can too?

I have this problem too.

The only way would be to configure a real server inside the serverfarm for each port you one to use.

There is no range option.

You could use a script to create the config for you and then copy paste it into the ACE terminal window.

I'm looking into that now, but is it not the case that you con't configure 2 rservers with the same IP?

This isn't possible:

ace-2/C1(config)# rserver host Test1

ace-2/C1(config-rserver-host)# ip address 10.1.1.1

ace-2/C1(config-rserver-host)# inservice

ace-2/C1(config-rserver-host)# rserver Test2

ace-2/C1(config-rserver-host)# ip address 10.1.1.1

Error: Duplicate IP address or subnet

Is there something that can be done with PAT?

Sorry Gilles, I misunderstood.

Did you mean the following?

serverfarm Test

rserver Test1 1112

inservice

rserver Test1 1113

inservice

rserver Test1 1114

inservice

I think this will work...
