Bind/unbind a service to/from a load balancing virtual server

You must bind a service to the load balancing virtual server. This enables the load balancer to forward the request to the server that the service represents. If your configuration changes, you can unbind a service from the load balancing virtual server.

Bind a service to a load balancing virtual server by using the CLI

At the command prompt, type:

-  bind lb vserver <name> <serviceName>
