Brocade ADX - Configuring Primary / Backup servers

Below provides a basic example on how to configure a primary / backup setup. Traffic is only distributed to the primary server, at the point the primary node becomes offline traffic is distributed to the secondary server.

server real RS_192.168.1.1
 port http
 port http url "HEAD /"

server real RS_192.168.1.2
 port http
 port http url "HEAD /"

server virtual VS_TEST
 port http
 port http lb-pri-servers
 bind http RS_192.168.1.1 http RS_192.168.1.2 http

Note : Remember that if you are using a remote server then the syntax "server remote <NAME> <IP>" should be used.

server remote
