Networking: Server Load Balancing with only 1 Server
We should be able to create a server load balancing rule with only one server in it. Right now, you have to create/edit a rule with at least two. Not allowing this prevents you from temporarily removing a server from a pool for maintenance.
so this server load balancing this just fails to work correctly anyway. I posted bunch of information about it in forums. It's broken.
It is not a big deal, just leaves a network annoyance in extra ARP messages floating around. But it also seems like a super quick and easy change... probably to remove logic in the GUI that says "make sure there are at least 2 IP's configured."
Hi. I must say this one confuses me. We didn't so much as over-think the feature as we did just not anticipate the need to setup server load balancing without 2 things to "balance" to. I'll leave the feature so it could gather votes however.
