Well this week I have been up in bonny Scotland assisting a customer and having a merry old time.
One of the issues that came up was how they could configure there Alteon’s to successfully load balance softgrid virtual application servers. Originally this was not being successful in any DCRefresh attempts or Streams.
Anyway, Nortel Application Switch Operating System 23.0 introduces load balancing tailored to the SoftGrid suite for the delivery of sequenced applications and the maintaining of persistency while launching applications from SoftGrid Client. Upon delivery of an application to SoftGrid Client, it can run on the client computer.
Have a read of the below link and see the document in full! This may just save you trying to set up the device if your new to this.
The great thing in the document is that it gives you a sample configuration so that you can help identify where a potential mistake may have been made.
