Back up a cache redirection virtual server

Cache redirection can fail if the primary virtual server fails, or if it is unable to handle excessive traffic. You can specify a backup virtual server to take over the processing of traffic when the primary virtual server fails.

To specify a backup cache redirection virtual server, use the backupVServer parameter, which specifies Backup Virtual Server. Maximum Length: 127
