HLB on Edge servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

     

    I would like to have confirmation about Hardware Load Balancer, that I can't find in doc:

    On Edge servers, if I have two Access/Web conf Edge Servers, do I need to put HLB both on external and internal interface ? Does it mean 2 HLB or is there HLB that can handle both interfaces ?

    Is it the same for A/V Edge servers ?

     

    Thanks.

  • Thanks for the response, but it's not answering my question.

     

    I finally found on RTM doc:

    you need load balancer on both external and internal interface of A/V Edge Server, and of Access/WebConf Edge Server.

    Which means 5 load balancer: 1 for the OCS Pool, 2 for A/V Edge servers, and 2 for the Access/WebConf Edge servers.

    That's already a lot...

  • You need Hardware Load balancers for OCS Enterprise Edition, EDGE and Communicator Web Access Servers

  • I think you can use the same HLBs for all EDGE servers

    So 1 for OCS pool and 2 for all EDGE servers
