Re: GSS for email server

GSS2.0 with CNR supports GSLB (Global server load balancing) of MX

records.

Here are the details

Each query is processed as follows, depending upon its type:

*A Queries- The GSS processes these queries and responds if it finds a

reply for the query. If it fails to find a reply, it queries the CNR

subsystem for a reply. The CNR reply is then forwarded to the D-Proxy.

*All other Queries- These queries are forwarded to the CNR subsystem.

The response from the CNR subsystem is forwarded back to the D-Proxy. If

the response contains A records in the Additional Section, the GSS may

perform its own query processing and modify the Additional Section of

the Response to provide a load-balanced A records in the Additional

Section.
