I have a question on how to setup load balancing on my CSMs located in my Data Center Distribution Layer, which consists of 6509s running Hybrid with CSMs running 4.2(5).
I need to load balance an application that is always sourced from (2) Citrix servers. So all client requests originate from 1 of these servers. Does anyone know how to load balance traffic to a couple of reals but is sourced from the same server? Also the sessions must be sticky.
I know I can setup (2) policies on the vIP with each policy tied to an access-list permitting traffic from (1) of the Citrix servers only to goto one serverfarm with (1) real (app server-1). And another policy permitting traffic from the 2nd Citrix server to goto a 2nd serverfarm with a 2nd real (app server-2). My concern is what happens if either app server goes down. I end up black-holing traffic from that Citrix server.
Is there another way to do this? Or possibly a better way??
Load balance all traffic originating from (2) Citrix servers to (2) App Reals and be sticky.
Thanks in advance for your help,
