To bind policies to a cache redirection virtual server by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

  • bind cr vserver <name> -policyName <string>
  • show cr vserver [<name>]


> bind cr vserver Vserver-CRD-1 -policyName bypass-cache-control 
> bind cr vserver Vserver-CRD-1 -policyName bypass-dynamic-url 
> bind cr vserver Vserver-CRD-1 -policyName bypass-urltokens 
> bind cr vserver Vserver-CRD-1 -policyName bypass-cookie 
> show cr vserver Vserver-CRD-1
