Hello starboy,

You can try that way:

Go to

Local Traffic ›› Pools : Pool List ›› "pool_with_server_to_be_stopped">>

tab "Members" >> choose member/server that will go to maintenance.

Next you can set the state you want.

HTH

Hi again,

Just for clarification,

You can set the state to be:

  • Enabled (All traffic allowed)

  • Disabled (Only persistent or active connections allowed)

  • Forced Offline (Only active connections allowed)

After that press "Update" of course...
