Using cache redirection in a cluster

Cache redirection in a cluster works in the same way as it does on a standalone Citrix ADC appliance. The only difference is that the configurations are done on the cluster IP address. For more information on cache redirection, see Cache Redirection.

Points to remember when using cache redirection in transparent mode on a cluster:

  • Before configuring cache redirection, make sure that you have connected all nodes to the external switch and that you have linksets configured. Otherwise, client requests are dropped.

  • When MAC mode is enabled on a load balancing virtual server, make sure MBF mode is enabled on the cluster by using the enable ns mode MBF command. Otherwise, the requests are sent to origin server directly instead of being sent to the cache server.
