Hi All,

 

How to point the session profile for the netscaler gateway VIP  at the load balancer config VIP  so that the storefront servers are load balanced for the Netscaler remote access. I am not able to find such option in session profile. Please could you help me.

Hi Arnaud,

 

I did checked the above link but did not find the section which can help me to understand to point session profile at LB VIP. If you have it handy , could you please help me with that.

Jitendra,

 

Do you have your Storefront HTTP or HTTPS defined?

Can your ADC resolve the FQDN  of your StoreFront?

If so, and your StoreFront URL is the created FQDN, under Session Profile you should have this FQDN defined under the Published Applications Tab

Hi Arnaud,

 

Yes, My Storefront are HTTPS defined, I can ping the Storefront FQDN from netscaler and also can see that the session profile has my storefront server FQDN defined under Published application.

 

Jitendra,

 

So what is missing?

What are you trying to add/accomplish?

 

Thanks

Arnaud

So I have SF1 and SF2 with IP (192.168.0.20 and 192.168.0.21).  I have a DNS record for base URL storefront.testlab.com which is pointing to both SF IPs. In the session profile I can see https://storefront.testlab.com/citrix/store defined under Published application. but when I ping the base URL its pointing SF2 and if I shutdown the SF2 the access gateway URL not go further after login. So wanted to know how to load balance the SF with Access gateway (Netscaler gateway)

Jitendra,

 

You need to Load Balance your StoreFront server on your ADC and then use the IP of the LBVS for the FQDN.

You should use the ADC Load Balance Feature and not Microsoft DNS.

Thanks

HI Arnaud,

 

So after creating the LBVS of storefront servers.

1. Do I need to create a DNS record to point storefront.testlab.com with LBVS VIP ? if so then do I need to change the base URL in storefront console to https://storefront.testlab.com which is pointing to LBVS VIP ?

2. After creating the LBVS, where I need to define that LBVS VIP or FQDN ? is it in published application under Session profile? If yes can the LBVS VIP retrieve the store information i.e. /Citrix/Store? because I am confuse as /Citrix/Store information resides on storefront server and that has a different IP what LBVS has.

 

Sorry I am new to Netscaler so confuse

Jitendra,

 

Point 1: Yes you need to create a FQDN for storefront.testlab.com pointing to your LBVS IP and change the StoreFront URL to match the FQDN.

Point 2: Yes, if you use the Wizard, after proving the StoreFront FQDN you can click on to retrieve the information automatically.
