View and troubleshoot ADC clusters

In Citrix ADM, you can view and troubleshoot the ADC clusters that are part of an Autoscale group. To view the ADC clusters, do the following:

  1. Go to Infrastructure > Public Cloud > Autoscale Group.

  2. Select the Autoscale group for which you want to view the clusters.

  3. Click View Clusters.

You can do the following operations on the selected ADC cluster:

  • Retry – Use this option when the cluster creation fails. This option appears only when the autoscaling fails. You can view the status and error message for the failed cluster.

  • Clean Up – This option reverts failed operation. Use this option if the errors are not fixed after you retry the cluster creation.

  • Recreate – This option deletes the existing cluster and replaces it with a new cluster. And, the application configurations are transferred to the new ADC cluster.

    Important

    This action impacts the application traffic because of the replaced ADC cluster.
