F5 Load Balancing Persistence


I am wondering if someone can tell me if its possible for me to remove a server from load balancing, but only after its persistence database is drained.  For instance, I want to down the server for all new connections EXCEPT for the addresses that are still in its persistence table.  When the persistence table finally empties, then the server should be out of load balancing all together.

When you disable a pool member it result is to set the State property of the pool member to Disabled which stops all traffic to the member except allowing persistent and active connections only.

So disabling a pool member functions in the manner which in which you have requested.

Mark the member disabled in the pool definition.

Anything that is currently persisted to that server will keep going back and the F5 will not send any new connections/sessions to that server.
