Bind a policy to a virtual server
A globally bound policy applies to all load balancing and content switching virtual servers.
Note that when binding a policy to a virtual server, you must identify it as a request-time or a response-time policy.

Bind a policy to a virtual server by using the GUI
- In the navigation pane, expand Traffic Management > Load Balancing, Traffic Management > Content Switching, Traffic Management > SSL Offload, Security > AAA- Application Traffic, or NetScaler Gateway, and then click Virtual Servers.
- In the details pane, double-click the virtual server to which you want to bind the policy, and then click Open.
- On the Policies tab, click the icon for the type of policy that you want to bind (the choices are feature-specific), and then click the name of the policy. Note that for some features, you can bind both classic policies and policies that use the default syntax to the virtual server.
- If you are binding a policy to a Content Switching virtual server, in the Target field select a load balancing virtual server to which traffic that matches the policy is sent.
- Click OK. A message in the status bar indicates that the policy is bound successfully.
