TFTP Load Balancing, VMWare and Citrix Provisioning Services

1

Hi there,

I'm trying to load balance tftp according to this post:

https://support.kemptechnologies.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/205673896-Load-Balancing-TFTP

Sadly it won't work, I can't dowload the file and receiver timeoute messages. Wireshark from Machine and Loadbalancer showing "Destination unreachable (Port unreachable)". I've tried different tftp server and configuration within load balancer.

Load balancing dns (udp) and http (tcp) working like a charm in the same environment.

Does anybody have some hints where to search?

thanks in advance

Hello,

As the service is transparent the real servers must have the LM interface or Shared IP address as their default gateway so that there is no asymmetric routing involved.

Hi Mark

Thanks for your answer, sadly this isn't working either. I'm still receiving Port unreachable with LM interface or shared IP. is there anything else I could have missed?
