Reconfiguring a Pool to Use Another WLB Appliance

Oct 16, 2015

You can reconfigure a pool to use a different Workload Balancing virtual appliance.

However, to prevent the old Workload Balancing appliance from inadvertently remaining configured and collecting data for the pool, you must disconnect the pool from the old Workload Balancing appliance before connecting the pool to the new Workload Balancing appliance.

Once the pool is disconnected from the old Workload Balancing appliance, reconnect the pool by specifying the new Workload Balancing appliance name.

To use a different Workload Balancing appliance

  1. On the pool you want to use a different Workload Balancing appliance, from the Pool menu, select Disconnect Workload Balancing Server and click Disconnect when prompted. For instructions, see Disconnecting from Workload Balancing.
  2. In the WLB tab, click Connect. The Connect to WLB Server dialog appears.
  3. In the Address box, type the IP address or host name (FQDN) name of the new Workload Balancing appliance.
    If the new Workload Balancing appliance uses different credentials, you must also enter the new credentials.
    Note: You must enter all the information that you would normally enter when you initially connect a pool to Workload Balancing. For information, see Connecting to Workload Balancing.
