Solved! Go to Solution.

It should be a very simple straight shot. Just modify the deployment setup (in AA) to include all the web servers in a single deployment.
Deployment was designed from the "get-go" to handle such a deployment.

Hi Martin -
It is important to note that the present SLX WebClient solution requires web server affinity aka "stickiness" between the browser client and a specific webserver. THis is true for multiple physical webservers (aka WebFarm) as well as multiple websites on a single WebServer (aka WebGarden).
The SLX WebClient makes use of IIS in-process (in-memory) session state as well as in-process (in-memory) NHibernate level1/level2 cache thus all interactions between the browser client and the webserver must stick to the same webserver from the logon page onward.

Good to hear Martin.
I'm sure everyone in the community will appreciate anything you share about your experiences configuring F5.

Our F5 team stated that the F5 can be configured to provide sticky sessions. They typically use source address persistence. Can you confirm whether that is supported for SalesLogix 7.5.2? Thanks!

Todd posted that SalesLogix web REQUIRES sticky sessions.
If you swap servers in the middle of a session.. all bets are off.

Hi Martin -
Sorry I cannot give you a definitive answer as I don't have hands on F5 experience/knowledge at this time myself.
Here is an example of something (one of the many things) I don't know about F5 - how does F5 determine if a specific IIS session has ended, or is the idea that you configure F5 and IIS to have an identical session timeout length and then both F5 and IIS continue to renew-extend that timeout period each time a request passes through F5 and to IIS?
Strongly recommend some testing of course. If anyone else has has some real-world knowledge and experiences with F5 for SLX Web hopefully they notice this thread and are able to share any insights or special issues.

I'm trying to configure a load balancing env. for Saleslogix with native W2008 component: NLB+2 ARR+2host IIS server with Saleslogix appllication. http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/511/achieving-high-availability-and-scalability---arr-and-nlb/
Does anybody have already configured this kind of Load Balancing. What are the best pratices?
