Hello - I've been playing with the latest PA release and trying the Secure
Gateway model - so far, it seems to be working well with my test users for 1
SG --> 1 PA - however, the manual is a bit thin on the SG -

-background; I try to balance my users across 2 PA servers to insure
connectivity -

- is it possible to have multiple PA servers point to the same SG? - is it
better to have multiple SG systems? - when a new user is setup via the SG,
how does the SG determine on which PA to build the account - on a PA server,
what if a user moves their connection from one PA server to another, how
does the SG know where to point (presuming the user did not delete their old
account on the old PA server? -

- this is not a cluster question - after reading the MS KB about clusters in
Win2k3, it seems straight forward to setup load balancing systems - that may
be a future step but right now the issue is of how many SGs are needed - is
it a 1:1 SG:PA server setup or 1:many PA server option? (presuming I setup a
load balanced win2k3 system for SGs not to mention load balancing a cluster
for PA servers) -

thanks, chris o.

Hey Chris,

If the PA servers were clustered, one SG for multiple PA servers would
not be an issue. However, in your current environment (different PA
servers containing different information) that is not possible to do,
for the reasons that you pointed out below (determining PA servers for
new users, etc.). You would need to have an individual SG for each of
the PA servers.

Thanks,
Alex
