Sticky and RDP

Hi,

Does it make any sense to configure sticky for two servers being load balanced for RDP session?

If I RDP to the VIP and connect to one of two RDP servers, once I login how will sticky help in this situation?

Any thoughts will be appreciated,

John...

Re: Sticky and RDP

If you use the routing tokens in the RDP protocol, then you don't need stickyness, you just need to create a L7 RDP policy map.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/app_ntwk_services/data_center_app_services/ace_appliances/vA3_1_0/configuration/slb/guide/classlb.html#wp1280133

If you would not use stickyness an no RDP L7 policy map, round robin would cause you to be equally load-balanced over the 2 servers.

This means that the first request is send to server 1, the second to server 2, the third to server 1,ETC...

In other words, your RDP will not function.

Hope this helps.
