CSM Connections failover within Sfarm between RIPs

Unanswered Question
Sep 10th, 2009

I know stateful connections failover is supported between redundant CSM modules. Is it also supported between 2 RIPs within a sfarm. i.e while an active connection session is being served by real server 1 and for some reason it malfunction, will the session be taken over by the 2nd real in sfarm or will it be dropped.

Can connection failover within sfarms be configured with policy, if at all.

I have this problem too.

how do you expect a TCP connection to be transfered from one server to the other ?

What about sequence number ? ports ? 3-way handshake ?

For the CSM everything is possible, but backend servers can't start tcp connection in the middle of it.

So the answer is no.
