If I have a web server farm with several servers and I suspend one of the servers. What happens to active connections?


Are the users that are currently "logged in" to the server that is suspended just dropped? How does suspending a server affect the currently active users on that server?

Suspending a service does not affect existing content flows, but it prevents additional connections from accessing the service for its content.

If you want to take one server out for maintainance then You should first suspend a service and then check exsisting connections to service using "sh flow" command (to make sure that there are no exixting connections to the service) prior to performing maintenance on the service.
