Can we use same pool across multiple virtual servers?

Is it OK to use a single / same pool across multiple Virtual Servers?

For example

Virtual Server1 --> abc_pool

Virtual Server2 --> abc_pool

Virtual Server 3 --> abc_pool

 

What is the harm in implementing the VIP's this way?

Yes you can. There shouldn't be any issue with this. The only thing is, any change in that pool will be applicable to all the applications/URLs which are behind those Virtual Servers.

 

Hope it helps!

Hi,

 

As Mayur already mentioned you can.

 

For example when you have a pool of web servers, which host the same web application listening on both http and https ports, you have to create 2 separate virtual servers, on for http and one for https ports and redirect traffic to the same pool. Just don't forget to associate all necessary health monitors to the pool (in my example that would be http and https monitors).
