This is the roadmap of the test setup


The test setup runs two real server using Direct Routing (DR). We will use later 2 different OS on our test host, Linux and Windows together.

Setup new hosts

Note that the following steps are already done by importing the mysql script mylvs.sql, the steps are showing the steps from scratch

Setup the hosts, goto ->Setup->Server

click Add

Fill the first host, name is 'Web-01 with the IP address,
the MRTG can be anything but use for now -, Click ADD


Confirm with OK to return


You should now see the new web server within the configuration:
Click on Copy to create the second node:


Edit the data for the second host, name is 'Web-02 with the IP address, MRTG host will be -, Click OK


There should be now 2 hosts available in our host list:


Setup a new node

Setup the node, to do goto Setup->Node

click Add

Add tne new node,we use Demo-Node01 with the node ip on port 80 (http).
We use the easiest scheduler called Round Robing, switch in the enable and monitor flag.
Note: The monitor flag will not have any functions assigned yet but it the flag hast to be enabled to support it.
Click Add


Click Back to leave the confirmation screen


Assign host to node

Assign our hosts, to do click assign


Click add to assign our first server to our new node


Pick WEB-01 from the drop down box of New Host
Choose Direct Routing
Weight 100 Port 80 and Enable, Please replace newlink with an alias name of your choice.
Click Add Host to Node

*Now do the same thing with WEB-02

Finally there should be two new host (WEB01 & WEB-02) in our node Demo-Node01

Now goto Apply on Configuration, select OK to apply the current configuration to myLVS

This should be our new inventory
