Active/passive servers behind CSS

Unanswered Question
Jul 14th, 2008

Hi,

I have 2 servers behind CSS, instead of doing load lancing , we need to work both servers as active/passive mode, mean if active server down then only second sever will serve.We can not move servers from behind css.

Please advice if this can be possible.

Regards,

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

active

service serverB

ip address x.x.x.2

active

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

owner SYED

content EXAMPLE

vip address 1.1.1.1

port 80

protocol tcp

add service serverA

primarySorryServer ServerB

active

********************************

Thanks Iftekhar,

Would it work when both servers are locally attached to CSS or sorry server only works when 2nd server is remote.
