Editing Virtual Server Settings

To edit the general settings of a virtual server, use the Edit Virtual Servers page. To access this page, follow these steps:

ProcedureTo edit the general settings of a virtual server

  1. From the Class Manager, click the Virtual Servers tab.

  2. Click Edit Virtual Servers.

  3. To edit a virtual server, click From the drop-down list next to the virtual server you want, choose Edit or Delete.

    The default virtual server can only be edited and not deleted.

  4. Set the State to On, Off, or Disabled.

    If you set the state to Disabled, you can turn the server back on, but the end user of the server cannot.

    This state is the virtual server’s state, which is independent of whether the server instance is on or off. If a virtual server’s state displayed on this page is on, the virtual server can only accept requests if the server instance is running as well.

    This is true of the default virtual server for the default server instance as well. If you turn off your server instance, your default virtual server is still set to on, but will not accept connections.

    You cannot turn off or disable the default virtual server for the server instance.

  5. Type the URL Hosts you want to use, if different than displayed under Urlhosts column.

    You can type more than one URL host, separated by spaces.

  6. When you are through editing virtual servers click OK.
