CSS and active/backup services

Unanswered Question
Jul 9th, 2008


just a simple question, in a CSS 11500 environment is it possible to define 2 services (A and B), add them to the same content and then use them in a active/backup way ? I mean, if A is active then all traffic is balanced to A, in case A is not active the traffic goes to B.

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

you will need to use the "sorry server" feature in CSS to acheive that

Sample Config

!********* SERVICE *****************

service serverA

ip address x.x.x.1


service serverB

ip address x.x.x.2


!********** OWNER ****************

owner SYED

content EXAMPLE

vip address

port 80

protocol tcp

add service serverA

primarySorryServer ServerB
