Add an edge gateway internal or uplink interface as a virtual server. A virtual server has a public IP address and services all incoming client requests.

By default, the load balancer closes the server TCP connection after each client request.


Log in to vCloud Air and navigate to the vCloud Edge Gateway Services UI.

See Log In and Navigate to Advanced Networking Services for information.


Click the Load Balancer tab and Virtual Servers.


Click the Add (add icon) icon.

The New Virtual Server dialog appears.


Configure the following options for the service server:



Enable Virtual Server


Enable Acceleration


Application Profile

Select the application profile to be associated with the virtual server. You can associate only an application profile with the same protocol as the virtual server that you are adding.


Type a name for the virtual server.


(Optional) Type a description for the virtual server.

IP Address

Type the IP address that the load balancer is listening on.


(Optional) Select the protocol from the drop-down menu—HTTP, HTTPS, TCP, UDP.


Type the port number that the load balancer will listen on.

Default Pool


Connection Limit

(Optional) Type the maximum concurrent connections that the virtual server can process.

Connection Rate Limit (CPS)

(Optional) Type the maximum incoming new connection requests per second.


(Optional) To associate application rules with the virtual server, click the Advanced tab and complete the following steps:


Click the Add (add icon) icon.

The application rules created for the load balancer appear. If necessary, add application rules for the load balancer. See Add an Application Rule.



Click OK.

Create an edge gateway firewall rule to permit traffic to the new virtual server (the destination IP address). See Add an Edge Gateway Firewall Rule.
