Anyone using LB to solve Console Proxy DNS..


Hi,

instead of using DNS A records in form x-y-w-z.domain.com --> x.y.w.zz,
there is another way as stated in CWIKI to fix an IP/A record in DNS that
will point to single public IP of the LB, and this LB should do
loadbalancing across all public IPs that could be potentially assigned to
CPVM... or something like that..

Anyone using it, and care to share LB setup - specifically I would like to
know if I understand the requirement above ^^^  - to do LB on top of many
public IPS..

Example:
I have more than 1000 public IPs and CPVM can in theory get ANY of these
1000 IPs, so here solution is to either:

- create 1000 DNS A records in from x-y-w-z.domain.com and access CPVM by
some of those 1000 A records..
- create a LB (single public IP and thus single DNS A entry), BUT do
loadbalancing on top of 1000 backend public IPs...

Not sure which solution is worse to be honest, but I currently use the
first one :) on a dedicated domain for Console Proxy... although when CPVM
is destroyed, the same public IP is usually recycled, so it mostly keeps
the same always...

Thx for any opinions.
