Question :

When setting up an outbound enabler to connect to 2 relay servers, what is/are the correct and/or advised setups?

  1. Create 2 outbound enablers, one to each relay server
  2. have 1 -cr line with one of the relay servers only
  3. have 1 -cr line, with 2 relay server entries ( whats the right syntax then?)
  4. have 2 -cr lines , one with each relay server (is that even possible?)
  5. point the -cr to a LB that ends up on one of the relay servers

#5 is the correct answer, assuming that you have properly setup the Relay Server configuration files on the two Relay Servers in the farm so they are aware of each other.

5 is correct for basic setup.

Here is a #6 for advanced setup. 6. Multiples OEs for higher performance and redundancy. This is done using seperate -id (backend server id) but identical -cs (i.e. physically single backend server). All of these OE uses step 5. The number of optimal OEs for speed subject to representative testing in your deployment environment.

SUP integrates with the OE in a half-advanced way using a pre-defined (fixed) number of OEs.

Hi,

Just found that some afaria manuals indicate that

-cr host=10.56.71.198;port=80;url_suffix=/IAS_relay_server/server/rs_server.dll;https=0;host=10.56.71.199;port=80;url_suffix=/IAS_relay_server/server/rs_server.dll;https=0 is also possible , adding 2 relay server entries in 1 -cr ( so option 3 )

While the syntax might be accepted, I don't believe this works. I have a Relay Server running on rdomarat-pc1040, and if I add a 2nd Relay Server to the -cr switch, and specify an invalid host name to simulate a Relay Server that is down, the RSOE fails to connect.
