Creating a backend server farm

Create a backend server farm. A backend server farm is a group of homogeneous backend servers to which clients make requests through the Relay Server farm.


There are no prerequisites for this task.

  1. In the left pane, right-click the Relay Server configuration file you want to work with, and click New » Backend Server Farm.

  2. Ensure Enable This Backend Server Farm is selected.

  3. Type the name associated with the new backend server farm.

  4. In Client Security choose a protocol for clients to use to connect to the backend server farm.

  5. In Backend Security choose a protocol for the Relay Server Outbound Enabler (rsoe) to use to connect to the backend server farm.

  6. For client-server affinity, choose the type of server you are using. For a MobiLink HTTP server with standalone Outbound Enabler or a MobiLink server with an embedded Outbound Enabler, click MobiLink. For a typical SQL Anywhere web service click SQL Anywhere. Advanced custom settings are available by clicking Custom as the server type. Once the Custom server type is selected, you have full control over the following affinity settings:

    1. Check the Active Cookie option if you want the Relay Server to use a standard HTTP set-cookie command to retain client-server affinity.

    2. Check the Active Header option if you want the Relay Server to use a proprietary header to retain client-server affinity.

  7. Optionally, type a description of the backend server farm in the Description field.

  8. Click Apply to continue adding backend server farms or OK to add the backend server farm and close the Create Backend Server Farm window.


The backend server farm is created.


You can view or edit backend server farm properties to manage your server farm setup.
