Load Balancing FTP Server thru CSM using a single Client IP
We have a need to load balance 3 FTP servers. These servers are reached only from a single client IP which is a database server. The FTP method that is being used is currently passive. Our configuration is currently unidirectional, ie, the FTP client (the one database server) sends to the VIP and the FTP Servers then talk directly back to the FTP client and the traffic does not go back through the CSM. The problem is that because FTP negotiates another port to talk on, we have to use sticky so that the connection is sent back to the original FTP server that sent the FTP data port to talk on. But, since we only have a single client IP that is ever used we are not load balancing appropriately across the FTP servers.
Traffic flow goes something like this, tcp port followed after colon as an example
1. FTP Client ----> VIP:21
2. CSM ---------> FTP Server:21
3. FTP Server --------> FTP Client(FTP server says come talk to me on port 1700)

DCNM is not functioning, the standby DCNM will...
