Content Server switch. Loadbalancer



We are using a Cisco loadbalencer to distribute load between our productive servers. We are running an EP6 on WAS6.20 and we have the following problem: Sometimes the portal on one of our productive servers goes down, when this happens the users that are using the specific server are naturally thrown off the portal. This is not a big problem in it self but the real problem is that our Loadbalener can not see that the portal is down (since the server is still running) and therefore continues to send users to this server. This effect is enhanced since the load is zero when the portal is down; all users are distributed to this specific server, e.g. No users can access the portal when the portal on one server goes down.

Is there any way to configure a Cisco Loadballencer, so that it makes sure that there is a portal running on a server before it distributes users to that server?

Any documentation would be very nice as well.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Best regards
