Here is what I am trying to figure out...
Let's say I have to servers SERVER 1 and SERVER 2
I want to be able to access always SERVER1 when typing http://webserver
BUT if the server goes down I would like to be able to access SERVER 2 typing http://webserver
I can't use NLB since is not supported by the app. so I am trying to figure out other ways to do it. I though about CNAMES and DNS records weights.
I don't want the CNAME (http://webserver
) to go to SERVER2 when SERVER1 is up and working. I would like people to go SERVER 2 when typing http://webserver
when SERVER1 is down.
