GSS - balance clauses

Hi giles,

In the DNS rules wizard there are three balance clauses. For one on the clause i assigned as Answer group and thing are working fine .

I am planning to use second balance clause and point to a answer group where Answers are pointing to sorry page configured on the CSS.

Will this work ? please advice me as i am planning to use a sorry page from the GSS if the 1st balance clause Answer group(Answers are down).

Thanks in advance..

Re: GSS - balance clauses


In an effort to offload Gilles, I try to answer your question ;-)

If I understand you correctly, you are trying to display a sorry page if ALL CSS reports an "offline" status for their production VIP. Actually, it is what the CSS in the different sites would do for clients already connected to that site, if you have configured a sorry server in each CSS. For new users however, if the VIP is seen as offline by the GSS, even your second clause will fail. One solution is to configure an additional VIP on each CSS, serving the sorry page only. Hence, if the first clause fails in the GSS, the second clause will send the user to a sorry page VIP (provided this VIP as active of course).

Hope this helps,

Hi Haemmerli,

I tested and it is working fine as expected.
