    DNS Entry for Load Balancer Quick Question

      Hi All

      We Currently have a f5 BigIP load balancer in place ( which we do not have visibility of).

      We have 2 application tiers running all application services and load balancer in place.


      websvr1, websvr2 and load balancer LB01

      What dns entry do we use. Currently we are using dns which resolves to both websvr1 and websvr2 ip address and ports which I think may be wrong? eg

      when i do an nslookup on the url used to access the application (dns entry) it resolves to ip address of websvr1 and websvr2 in round robin.

      My question is should this dns entry be resolving to the virtual Server of the Load balancer ?

      Thanks in advance
