Web Service Load Balancing and Failover


Web Services are not load balanced but rather the session server on which the Web service resides can be load balanced.

In order for clients to take advantage of the VHI load balancing and fail over feature when using Web services they must specify the "connect via domain" or "specify a domain server" in the SOAP request or use environment variables to ensure that the Web service calls the appropriate session server. Refer to the VHI domain documentation for further information on VHI load balancing and fail over, especially Configuring Management Servers for Failover under General Management Services.
