Is it possible to configure CSS 11500 to load balance individual Websites on the same service IP address.
I have configured websites in IIS with Host Headers and same IP address.
I want to configure CSS so that it can load balance individual websites. Is it possible.
Web1 service IP x.x.x.1 hostheader www.x.com
Web1 service IP x.x.x.1 hostheader www.y.com
Web2 service IP y.y.y.1 hostheader www.x.com
Web2 service IP y.y.y.1 hostheader www.y.com
VIP address z.z.z.1
is it possible to load balance www.x.com and www.y.com
First, you need to set your dns server to response with the same vip address for the 2 domain names.
On the css, you can create 2 content rules with the same virtual ip address and whatever services you want - could be the same or different.
To distinguish between the 2 content rules, you simply add to each one of them a line similar to the following one :
Thanks for your reply.
I was looking more on the back end servers.
If we can create services based on domain names with same IP address and monitor them individually.
The idea is if one website goes down , the other website with a different domain name but with same IP address still gets load balanced.
The services are configured with ip addresses.
You can use the same services with whatever content rule,...whatever the domain name.
So I'm not sure what is the concern.
The CSS does not change the domain name inside the request, and does not link a service to a particular domain name either.
