  • I've not done this, but I expect that the IFD App Root Domain should point to a load-balanced Url (that is accessible by the remote clients) for the Application Servers, whereas the IFD SDK Root domain should be a load-balanced Url for the Platform Servers

  • For multiple servers Network Load Balance(NLB) is the solution.

  • Do we need DNS entry for each load balanced Url?

    If this requires secure connection (HTTPS) do we need Certificate for each server? OR wild character single domain certificate will be sufficient?

  • What I understand is there will be one NLB for multiple Application Servers and one NLB for Multiple Platform Servers.

    I am not clear about following items:-

    1.DNS entries for NLB and internal routing

    2.IFD App Root Domain , IFD SDK Root Domain, AD App Root Domain, AD SDK Root Domain Settings so that Application + Outlook will work over the Internet and Intranet

    3.All this should happen in secure way (HTTPS) Connection.

    4.Number of Certificates required
