Disconnecting from Workload Balancing

Oct 09, 2015

If you want to stop Workload Balancing from monitoring your pool, you must disable Workload Balancing on the pool by disconnecting the Workload Balancing server.

When you disconnect a pool from the Workload Balancing virtual appliance, Workload Balancing permanently deletes information about the pool from the Workload Balancing database and stops collecting data for that pool. This means that if you want to use the same Workload Balancing virtual appliance to manage the pool again, you must re-enter the appliance's information in the Connect to WLB Server dialog box.
Important: If you only want to stop Workload Balancing temporarily, click the WLB tab and click the Pause button.

To disconnect from Workload Balancing

  1. In the Resource pane of XenCenter, select the resource pool on which you want to stop Workload Balancing.
  2. From the Pool menu, select Disconnect Workload Balancing Server. The Disconnect Workload Balancing dialog box appears.
  3. Click Disconnect to stop Workload Balancing from monitoring the pool.
    Note: If you disconnected the pool from the Workload Balancing virtual appliance, to re-enable Workload Balancing on that pool, you must reconnect to the appliance.
