Server load balancing onto itself

es fro forum.jpg

hi

I have a customer with 4710 that load balances inbound traffic onto 2 servers. this works

There is also a requirement for the servers that are load balnced to [what seems to me ] to load balance onto themselves and for other server on the same vlan to use the servers in the farm in a load balanced way.

driving me bonkers ......

any ideas ?

thanks

Re: Server load balancing onto itself

this is possible with client nat.

By nating the source ip , you trick the server to believe the connection comes from another device.

So, all you need is a policy to dynamically nat request coming in.

You add this new policy on the server side interface so that only requests coming from the servers are source nated.
