Configuring real servers
Real servers are physical servers that are used to form real server pools. These dedicated servers provide clients with services such as HTTP or XML content, streaming audio or video, TFTP/FTP uploads and downloads, etc. You can start configuring a real server by giving it a unique configuration name, setting its status, and specifying its IP address.
After you have created your real server configuration objects, you can select them as members to form real server pools. At that stage, further configurations are needed as discussed in Configuring real server pools on page 1.
To configure a real server configuration object:
- Go to Server Load Balance > Real Server Pool >Real Server.
- Click Create New to display the configuration editor.
- Complete the configuration and add members as described in Real Server configuration.
- Click Save.
- Repeat the same steps to add as many real server configuration objects as needed.
