App-V Load Balancing RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have been trying to configure load-balancing of our App-V servers through a Nortel Alteon switch.  We have the basics of the RTSP stream working using direct server return within the Alteon.  However, after the initial RTSP connection (554)  their is a secondary connection opened for data exchange which seems to be over a high-order TCP port.  I can't find any documentation about this port or port range that it will use?

    Any ideas?

  • Ultimately, the extra ports will be "above 32000".  It can only be configured via registry but you don't want to do that.  If you have multiple servers, all of the ports the client connects with (there are two "high ports") must go to the same machine.  I'm not sure what Nortel calls it, but something like "source route routing" set on the LB will cause additional ports from the same client IP address to be routed to the same server, which is what you need. 

    RTSPS is another option, which causes the client to only use one port, but limits scalability.
