How to handle a server being offline in a web farm


Recommended Posts


I have a web farm with four servers in it. I have made appropriate entries in all config files so that the PSS service on any server can talk to the service on any other server. Everything's working great. My question is: What's the best practice if I need to take one of the servers offline for some time? I don't want to end up in a situation where a server generates images and then becomes offline before the images are served.

 Do I need to make any config changes in the other servers? I would assume not, as otherwise this would be a maintenance headache.
