ACE probe dilemma

Hi, I have a requirement to use the ACE to provide Active/Standby service for 2 services located on 2 physical servers. Server A is active for one port and backup for antoher, Server B vice versa.

As well as this, I am doing port translation - incoming requests to one port are being translated to one of two ports - see config below


rserver host TEST-FE01

ip address 10.100.100.1

inservice

rserver host TEST-FE02

ip address 10.100.100.2

inservice


serverfarm host test-farm

predictor leastconns

rserver TEST-FE01 20902

backup-rserver TEST-FE02 20902

inservice

rserver TEST-FE01 20903

inservice standby

rserver TEST-FE02 20902

inservice standby

rserver TEST-FE02 20903

backup-rserver TEST-FE01 20903

inservice


My problem is that I want to configure probes for each ip/port combination, but I can't seem to achieve this as my server farm contains servers that listen on more than one port and a probe can only be configured with one TCP port and can only be applied to either the rserver or the whole serverfarm.

Can anynone see how I can achieve this

Many Thanks in advance

You will need to define probe under serverfarms's Rserver config


probe tcp port-20902

port 20902


probe tcp port-20903

port 20903


rserver host TEST-FE01

ip address 10.100.100.1

inservice


rserver host TEST-FE02

ip address 10.100.100.2

inservice


serverfarm host test-farm

predictor leastconns

rserver TEST-FE01 20902

probe port-20902

inservice

rserver TEST-FE01 20903

probe port-20903

inservice

Many Thanks again Syed.


For some reason I thought I could only have one probe per serverfarm :S
