The configuration file (ns.conf) for the default partition is available in the /nsconfig directory. For admin partitions, the file is available in the /nsconfig/partitions/<partitionName> directory.
Note: Integrated caching in admin partitions is supported from NetScaler 11.0 onwards.
To configure integrated caching (IC) on a partitioned NetScaler, after defining the IC memory on the default partition, the superuser can configure the IC memory on each admin partition such that the total IC memory allocated to all admin partitions does not exceed the IC memory defined on the default partition. The memory that is not configured for the admin partitions remains available for the default partition.
For example, if a NetScaler appliance with two admin partitions has 10 GB of IC memory allocated to the default partition, and IC memory allocation for the two admin partitions is as follows:
Then, the default partition has 10 - (4 + 3) = 3 GB of IC memory available for use.
Note: If all IC memory is used by the admin partitions, no IC memory is available for the default partition.
Note: Applicable from NetScaler 11.0 onwards.
On a partitioned NetScaler appliance, the scope of updating the L2 and L3 parameters is as follows:
Note: Dynamic routing in admin partitions is supported from NetScaler 11.0 onwards.
While dynamic routing (OSPF, RIP, BGP, ISIS, BGP+) is by default enabled on the default partition, in an admin partition, it must be enabled by using the following command:
> set L3Param -dynamicRouting ENABLED
Note: A maximum of 63 partitions can run dynamic routing (62 admin partitions and 1 default partition).
On enabling dynamic routing on an admin partition, a virtual router (VR) is created.
NetScaler logs are not partition-specific. Log entries for all partitions must be stored in the /var/log/ directory.
In a partitioned NetScaler, you cannot have specific log servers for a specific partition. The servers that are defined at the default partition are applicable across all admin partitions. Therefore, to view the audit logs for a specific partition, you will have to use the "show audit messages" command.
Note: The users of an admin partition do not have access to the shell and therefore are not able to access the log files.
You can get the web logs for an admin partition as follows:
To view the partition for each log entry, customize the log format to include the %P option. You can then filter the logs to view the logs for a specific partition.
You can get the trace for an admin partition as follows:
To get the tech support bundle for a specific partition, you must execute the following command from the default partition:
> show techsupport -scope partition -partitionname <string>
Note: This command also gives system-specific information.
