Why can't you just use Source IP persistence with WLC?
Thanks for the reply (and sorry for the Outlook-quoting).
I'd discounted persistence as I understood it to be only for making each
connection persistent, but thinking about it again that doesn't make a
lot of sense!
Am I right in thinking that if a single client makes its first
connection to node1 then as long as there are connections made before
the persistence time-out they will be made to the same real server
again? But then if the weight changes to 0 on node1 new connections will
be made to node2 regardless of the persistence time-out? (as should
happen on SH but doesn't).
