CSM general questions

I've many times worked on the CSS but this is my first on the CSM and have some functional questions regarding it that I cannot seem to find answers for in the CCO docs. I appreciate any/all input.

I am running a CSM in bridged (non-secure) mode with the client side being on the MSFC side and my questions are as follows:

1) Should I disable NAT for both the client and server side?

2) Should the real servers default GW be pointed back towards the CSM VIP?

3) Does the CSM replace the source IP address of the client (in the client request) with that of itself?

Thanks again.

Mike.

Re: CSM general questions

Mike,

For a vserver in a transparent caching setup, you would configure no nat client, no nat server, but for most other traffic, you will want nat server, no nat client.

If you are refeffing to "ip nat" under the interface in the MSFC config, remove that from the CSM vlans.

For bridged mode CSM, the real server gateway is the MSFC vlan address on the CSM client vlan of the CSM, not to the CSM VIP.

If you config nat client, you also must config a nat pool for the CSM. In this case, the client source IP is replaced with a nat pool address.
