SecureXL and Sticky Decision Function in ClusterXL Load Sharing mode are not supported together.


The following two options are available:

  • Either disable SecureXL on each cluster member,
  • Or disable Sticky Decision Function in ClusterXL object in SmartDashboard and install policy.

NOTE: When disabling or re-enabling Sticky Decision Function (SDF) you must install policy twice otherwise you SecureXL status will display "Waiting for Policy"

This limitation is described in every ClusterXL Administration Guide (R55, R60, R61, R62, R65, R70, R70.1, R71, R75, R75.20, R75.40, R75.40VS, R76, R77.X, R80.10) - Chapter 'Sticky Connections'.

This solution has been verified for the specific scenario, described by the combination of Product, Version and Symptoms. It may not work in other scenarios.
