Configuration Jobs: Replicate Configuration from One Instance to Multiple Instances

Dec 27, 2016

You might have configured both load balancing and front-end optimization (FEO) on a NetScaler instance for your deployment. However, now you want to replicate only the FEO configuration to other NetScaler instances.

You can use the Configuration Jobs feature of NetScaler MAS to extract the FEO configuration from a NetScaler instance and replicate it on multiple instances.

To retrieve and replicate configuration from one instance to other NetScaler Instances

1.     Navigate to Infrastructure > Configuration Jobs, and then click Create Job.
