CSM sticky?

I have configured the

CSM with sticky on all vservers. The one problem I am having is the programmers that need to get directly to the server cannot, they are stuck on the server they inially attached to, they cannot even connect using telnet or http. What am I missing or what do I need to add to allow them to access servers, bypassing the sticky???

Re: CSM sticky?

Hi Thornick,

If you say that they are always stuck to the same server,

then they go to the server via the virtual ip address and NOT directly.

I assume that de servers are directly attached behind the CSM blade.

One possible solution could be to use a policy serverfarm (in your VSERVERs)

which is not sticky and also use the client group option within this policy serverfarm.

This client group refers to an access-list containing all ip addresses of

your programmers PC's.

Re: CSM sticky?

create a vserver for the server vlan ie: and use a serverfarm as below

serverfarm route

no nat server

no nat client

predictor forward


Do not configure stickyness on this vserver.

Your programmers should have direct access to the real servers now.
