Looking at the HAE to solve an issue, not sure if it is capable of it.....

Need it to do the following:

load balance 2 ldap servers running on physical hardware, the server running the HAE extension is running on a VMWARE server. All servers are in the same subnet

SITREP: Built a SLES 11 SP3 box at 10.0.0.163, went into IPLB and configured a "virtual server" at IP 10.0.0.166:636, added in real servers at 10.0.0.89:636 , and 10.0.0.88:636

Saved the config, checked that ldirectord was running...

can't ping the virtual server, can't access the ldap service, google fu fail since the LVS docs tend to refer to files overwritten by YAST, also tried a real IP on the server as the virtual also as 10.0.0.163:0 and 10.0.0.166:0

any ideas?
