Notice:

This technical note applies to Siebel version 7.7 and higher only. It does not apply to previous Siebel versions 7.5.x, 7.0.x, 6.x, etc. as Resonate Central Dispatch is used for load balancing in these versions.

Before deploying a third party Load Balancer with the Siebel Applications, Siebel Systems recommends that you review this technical note in detail. Siebel Systems also strongly recommends that customers are proficient with F5 BIG-IP technology or have an F5 BIG-IP consultant on-site for assistance.

Use the information in this technical note with the Deployment Planning Guide in the Siebel Bookshelf, as there are extensive cross references between this technical note and the Deployment Planning Guide.

Third party Load Balancer configuration information is subject to change by third party vendors. Review the third party vendor's documentation carefully whenever there appears to be a discrepancy. Please report any necessary updates to Siebel Technical Support and this document will be updated appropriately as needed.
