6.1 Creating an Origin-Server Pool

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


Before You Begin

Before you begin creating an origin-server pool, decide the following:

Creating an Origin-Server Pool Using the Administration Console

To create an origin-server 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 a virtual server.

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

    The New Origin-Server Pool wizard starts.

    Description of "Figure 6-1 New Origin-Server Pool Wizard"

  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete creation of the origin-server pool by using the details—name, load balancing method, origin servers, and so on—that you decided earlier.

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

  6. Click Close on the Results screen.

    • The details of the origin-server pool that you just created are displayed on the Origin-Server Pools 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."

Creating an Origin-Server Pool Using the CLI

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

For example, the following command creates an origin-server pool osp-soa containing two origin servers and in the configuration soa.

tadm> create-origin-server-pool --config=soa --type=http, osp-soa
OTD-70201 Command 'create-origin-server-pool' 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-pool, see the Oracle Traffic Director Command-Line Reference or run the command with the --help option.
