By using admin partitions, resource identifiers such as IP addresses and entity names can be reused in different partitions. This means that:
- You can use an IP address (for example, 126.96.36.199) as a virtual server IP address in different partitions.
- You can use the same name (for example, lbvserver1) for a virtual server in different partitions.
This is possible as each partition is associated with a different VLAN (or bridgegroup) and therefore traffic destined for different applications is segregated.
As shown in the following image, the virtual server IP address 188.8.131.52 is used in Partition1, Partition2, and Partition3.
Let us understand how the configurations must be performed.
