Loadbalancing  with Brocade ADX

  • 1.  Loadbalancing  with Brocade ADX

    Posted 12-21-2016 02:04 PM

    Curious if  anybody has setup  PAM 4.3.1 with  Brocade ADX  Loadbalancing  successfully ?

    It is not  one of certified LB for  PAM 4.3.1 yet

     

    NOTE: It uses  CSW-rules  compare to iRule definition in F5

    It uses requires url prefix.  So it looks like 

     

    csw-rule "pam-csw-r01" url prefix "/jmx-console*"

    csw-rule "pam-csw-r02" url prefix "/web-console*"

    .......

    .......

    csw-rule "pam-csw-r24" url prefix "/ws/node1"

    csw-rule "pam-csw-r25" url prefix "/ws/node1*"

    csw-rule "pam-csw-r26" url prefix "/ws/node2"

    csw-rule "pam-csw-r27" url prefix "/ws/node2*"

    csw-rule "pam-csw-r28" url prefix "/*"

     

    Per Brocade ADX Admin, it is not handling  node1 /node2 as F5 would.

    So after login to    https://itpam-loadbalancer/itpam

    it  seems to  load main page but comes back with error

    c20.log log show  "user  servicedesk authenticated"

     

    NOTE:

    1. Login using Loadbalancer VIP 

    say  https://itpam-loadbalancer/itpam/Web.jsp  url works fine when only one Domain Orchestrator is up

    2. when both started login to individual host names say

    https://itpam-host1/itpam/Web.jsp 

    https://itpam-host2/itpam/Web.jsp  works fine

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Santosh

    Unfortunately this load balancer is not supported for Process Automation.

    I can't help you with your specific load balancer but i can encourage you by saying that we are using NetScaler, wich is also not supported.

    Any load balancer for Process Automation must support Layer 7 load balancing. There are several load balancers that support this and I believe Brocade is one of them, but CA Support can not offer specific assistance with that implementation.

    You can take the provided sample NGiNX configuration files on the Process Automation media and the F5 iRule in the documentation to use as a base for your implementation. 

    Beyond that I can only suggest to see if this is something that CA Services can assist with.

    This is a longshot considering how old this post is.....do you know if there is a (even outdated) hardening guide for the ADX?
