In my setup , I have 6500 with FWSM and ACE module . FWSM is configured in trasparent mode , multipl context . ACE is not yet configured .
I have a requirement to configure the ACE to load balance exchage servers traffic.Exchange servers are in Vlan 12 , there are other servers in this vlan that do not need loadbalancing service . I'm looking for the best deisgn of the ACE so that , Exchange servers traffic use the ACE then pass through the FWSM , while other servers in the same vlan just go the FWSM directly without passing through the ACE.
currently , All servers in vlan 12 are going through the FWSM before it goes to the core.
ACE should run in trasparent mode , multiple context . I'm wondering what is the best option to configure the ACE ,any help ?
In My case the number of clients is over 700 users, using source nat would be ok in case of small deployment .what do you think ?
Suppose that I can isolate the load balanced servers into new vlan , in that case , I do not need one armed mode and I can just configure one ACE context in transparent mode for each type of servers that needs load-balancing
Where did you find info that source NAT (PAT actually ) ) is limited to small deployments only? I'm not aware of such limitation. There are some limits, but I believe 700 users should not be a problem. Most mentioned drawback is that in case you are using NAT/PAT, your client IP is hidden from servers.
Some other load-balancers (e.g. Citrix NetScaler which is recommended replacement for ACE) are doing source NAT by default, as preferred mode.
If you isolate servers to a new VLAN, bridged/transparent mode for ACE is ok.
