Multiple Mobility Pack servers?

Is anyone running multiple Mobility Pack servers? If so are you running
these in a DNS round robin? or perhaps behind a Netscaler?

Also... I have read from Novell the mobility pack server supports up to 150
users per server and Danita's Guide states "A single Mobility server can
manage up to 300 users." Whats the best gauge? On a user basis or a device
basis?

Thanks!

I don't think you really can do that, because once a user is configured
for a specific Mobility server the user has to keep using that server.
Now in the future this may change as Novell works on improving
scalability, but for now you're going to be rather limited.
Essentially, if you need multiple servers, you need to keep track of
which users are on which servers.

I would personally say no more than 150 *devices* to play it safe.

Re: Multiple Mobility Pack servers?

We of course have more than 150 devices....

Would it be possible to connect multiple Mobility Pack servers to a remote
PostgreSQL DB? Like you can with BES to SQL....
