Sorry server

We would like to implement a Sorry server solution whereby we have a single server and have multiple Sorry services configured with each service requesting a particular piece of Content. For example:

service sorry1

ip address 155.144.24.1

get content - IFS service down

service sorry2

ip address 155.144.24.1

get content - ePAY service down

Can anyone help?

thanks

Re: Sorry server

Tony,

One way to do this is to define your 'Sorry services' with the type redirect and then reference these under your content rules with the PrimarySorryServer. If the main service is down the client will be passed to the sorry service, which will issue a HTTP 302 redirect to the client browser. You can also include a redirect string to point to a specific piece of content, such as a html page with a service unavailable message.

Regards,

Darren.

Example config is;

Service MAIN_WEB1

ip address 192.168.1.100

active

Service Sorry1

type redirect

ip address 192.168.1.200

redirect-string www.xyz.com/servicedown.html

active

owner xyz.com

content WEB

vip address 192.168.2.200

add service MAIN_WEB1

primarySorryServer Sorry1

prot tcp

port 80

url "/*"

active

Re: Sorry server

Darren,

Many thanks for your response. Your suggestion works fine although it's not what I envisaged it works and that's another problem out of the way.

Re: Sorry server

Darren or anyone for that matter,

Don't know whether you'll pick up this update but I eventually got to implement the Sorry Server as per your suggestion. The redirect works well via the Sorry Server. Trouble is you can't connect to the main service (MAIN_WEB1) with url "/*" configured and you can't configure a primary Sorry server without the url "/*"!!!

Any ideas???

regards

Tony
