Local director with multiple virtual servers

I have a local director with 4 interfaces. Two interfaces are used for 2 virtual servers each bound to 2 real servers. The virtuals and the reals are on the same sub-net as the local director's IP address.

I would like to know if I can use the other 2 interfaces to bind 2 real addresses to a third virtual where all three of the address are located on a different Subnet from the servers already present.

Re: Local director with multiple virtual servers

Yes this is possible. However, in order to make this work you will need to configure a couple

of things. First, on the Local Director you should configure an 'alias ip address' that belongs in this new subnet. Second, you need to configure a secondary IP address on the upstream router. This will serve several purposes. One, the servers will be able to reach devices outside their own subnet. Two, the router will now belong to this subnet and therefore will be able to ARP for the new virtual.

Hope it helps.
