Binding an Integrated Caching Policy to a Virtual Server

Sep 01, 2016

When you bind a policy to a virtual server, it is available only to requests and responses that match the policy and that flow through the relevant virtual server.

When using the configuration utility, you can bind the policy using the configuration dialog box for the virtual server. This enables you to view all of the policies from all NetScaler modules that are bound to this virtual server. You can also use the Policy Manager configuration dialog for the integrated cache. This enables you to view only the integrated caching policies that are bound to the virtual server.

At the command prompt, type:

  • bind lb vserver <name>@ -policyName <policyName> -priority <positiveInteger> -type (REQUEST|RESPONSE)
  • bind cs vserver <name>@ -policyName <policyName> -priority <positiveInteger> -type (REQUEST|RESPONSE)
