Ace: Suspending Virtual Servers

Unanswered Question
Sep 23rd, 2010

Hi everyone,

We have a lot of Ace 4710 appliances with a lot of serverfarms in it and I know how to suspend virtual servers with the GUI, but i'd like to know how to do that with the CLI. Is it possible?

For now, when we want to deny access temporarily to a serverfarm, we use XML or CLI to put all the real servers out of service but it would be usefull to make suspend the serverfarm itself with a cli or xml command.

Thanks in advance!

I have this problem too.

As Chris mentioned in the following thread, there is no toggle set every

rserver under a serverfarm out of service.

If you can add a probe, you could be possible with dummy probe.

For example, when your all servers don't open port# 10000, allservers

may go down with the following configuration.


probe tcp dummy

  port 10000

  faildetect 1

  passdetect interval 600

  passdetect count 10

serverfarm host sf1

  probe dummy

  rserver sv1


  rserver sv2



By removing 'probe dummy' config from serverfarm, rservers may return operational.

You may go down all servers in a serverarm easily but load of probe process may

increase since ACE sends dummy probe to all rservers.
