HTTP redirects to a static page

Hi Giles,

We have a client who has a primary farm, and this backs up to a secondary farm if the primary fails. What they now want is to have a "static" page displayed if the main service being provided by the serverfarm is unreachable. This static page would exist on the same real servers in the serverfarm.

How is this best done?

Would using "Redirect Virtual Servers", be the best way to do it?

thanks

Re: HTTP redirects to a static page

Sheldon,

if the main service is down, how can you display a static webpage from the same service ?

I mean, if the link is down, or the server is dead,... the server won't be able to display any webpage.

It would be better to have another server somewhere else to do this function.

Regarding the configuration, the link you have identified seems to be the best approach.

Thanks,

Gilles

Re: HTTP redirects to a static page

Hi Giles,

Further to your response, just wondering if it is possible to have a HTTP redirect setup with the following logic:

if(the HTTP Return Code indicates that the site has gone down)

then

(obviously the primary farm is down, so action to backup to the "redirect" farm)

From reading about HTTP return codes, i don't think it is possible to redirect to a redirect farm, but just wondering, if the logic can be used?

thanks
