gtm noob question

Hi forum!

 

I got some gtms - which seem to be linked in to our ltms as when I add a pool member to my gtm i only get the ltms listed back - is there any way I can get the gtm to return an arbitrary address of my choosing? I'd rather avoid a direct server return type affair (sorry probably a netscaler term)

 

 

thanks!

The short answer is that you can manually create servers and virtual servers ( note that in DNS, pools are made up of virtual servers ) which will respond with that virtual server address.

You can also add iRules which return arbitrary responses if the above doesn't do what you want ( which it should do )

Thanks Pete, i figured out the GTM seems to be using testing the vserver with via iQuery, trouble is I don't want it to do that

Any ideas of how to stop it for using iQuery for this specific vserver on GTM?

thanks! 🙂

...prober pools... 🙂

Hi Nik, Pretty simple – create a generic server called ‘dummy’ without a monitor and manually add the virtual server to that, then add it to the pool. GTM will not check the status of it. Pete
