You can change the state of a Real Server to either Enable, Disable or Maintenance. Enable a Real Server to make it accept new requests, connections or sessions. Disable a Real Server to terminate all existing connections immediately or put it into Maintenance mode to allow existing connections to terminate naturally.
Disabling your Real Servers allows you to perform maintenance or to temporarily disassociate them from a Service. A Real Server that is in disabled or maintenance mode will not accept any new connections or requests until it is enabled.
There are two ways to change the status of a Real Server:
- Use the Disable/Maintenance/Enable actions on the BASIC > Server Health page.
- Edit the Real Server on the BASIC > Services page.
