7.1 Adding an Origin Server to a Pool

You can add an origin server to an origin-server pool by using either the administration console or the CLI.


Before You Begin

Before you begin adding an origin server to a pool, decide the following:

Adding an Origin Server to a Pool Using the Administration Console

To add an origin server to a pool by using the administration console, do the following:

  1. Log in to the administration console, as described in Section 2.3.2, "Accessing the Administration Console."

  2. Click the Configurations button that is situated at the upper left corner of the page.

    A list of the available configurations is displayed.

  3. Select the configuration for which you want to create an origin server.

  4. In the Common Tasks pane, click New Origin Server.

    The New Origin Server wizard starts.

  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete creation of the origin-server pool by using the details—origin-server pool, host, port, and so on—that you decided earlier.

    After the origin server is created, the Results screen of the New Origin Server wizard displays a message confirming successful creation of the origin server.

  6. Click Close on the Results screen.

    • The details of the origin server that you just defined are displayed on the Origin Servers page.

    • In addition, the Deployment Pending message is displayed at the top of the main pane. You can either deploy the updated configuration immediately by clicking Deploy Changes, or you can do so later after making further changes as described in Section 4.3, "Deploying a Configuration."

Adding an Origin Server to a Pool Using the CLI

To add an origin server to a pool, run the create-origin-server command.

For example, the following commands adds as origin server os1 in the pool osp1 of the configuration soa.

tadm> create-origin-server --config=soa --origin-server-pool=osp1      
OTD-70201 Command 'create-origin-server' ran successfully.

For the updated configuration to take effect, you should deploy it to the Oracle Traffic Director instances by using the deploy-config command.

For more information about create-origin-server, see the Oracle Traffic Director Command-Line Reference or run the command with the --help option.
