Re: Confing moding

Ashley,

There are several ways to approach this problem, so I will tackle them in order of preference based on experience:

1) If you want to set up an "Active-Active" configuration, Use Multi-Site Manager(MSM):

MSM allows for exactly the setup you refer to.  One of the benefits STM has is that unlike other old-world hardware ADC's, your configuration is not "anchored" to the IP addresses used. With MSM, you get a configuration that allows you to specify which configuration elements are "different" on each site. So in your case, your Virtual Server configuration might be the same (ie: same SSL certificates, same TrafficScript to apply your business logic) but you can specify different Traffic IP addresses and different pools to use. There is a demo video I recorded of MSM available here: Riverbed Stingray Multi Site Manager.mp4 - YouTube that you can watch to see if it helps in your case.


2) If you want to set up a "Cold Standby" configuration in a DR site you have two options:

   a) You can use a full STM backup from the primary, and use the "Google Chrome124.png

Google Chrome126.png

3) If you are OK getting your hands dirty, the STM configuration is just a file structure inside your backup. You can un-tar it, mod, re-tar it, upload to your secondary and restore (either as a full restore, or using the option listed in (2a) above):
