Session Manager Rules for the lbconfig.txt File

The syntax of a virtual server definition is as follows:

VirtualServer = sid:hostname:SCBroker_port;sid:hostname:SCBroker_port;


  • VirtualServer is the name of the pool of Siebel Servers that will be load-balanced. The default name is VirtualServer. This name is included in the Application Object Manager connection strings in the Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE) configuration file (eapps.cfg). By default, the VirtualServer pool contains all of the Siebel Servers running at the time the SWSE was initially configured.
  • sid is the server ID of a Siebel Server. This server ID is a unique number that is assigned to each Siebel Server during initial configuration.
  • hostname is the network host name or IP address of the computer on which a Siebel Server runs. If the computer is part of a cluster, then this value is the cluster virtual host name.
  • SCBroker_port is the port number of the Siebel Connection Broker on a Siebel Server.
