[THIN] Re: Zone Preference and Failover

I assign users to the servers in the different zones based on an AD
Security Group.

Let say....

Policy Priority 1 (highest) with apply to set to ZoneA SG, with ZoneA
primary, and ZoneB Never connect 
Policy Priority 2 (lowest) with apply to set to ZoneB SG, with ZoneB
primary, and ZoneA Never connect 

The users who need to have access to both servers are in ZoneA SG and
ZoneB SG.

If a published app they are trying to hit is abailable on servers in
ZoneA and ZoneB (such as Outlook), this setup of policies should make it
so they only access Outlook from the servers in ZoneA?

If a published app is only only available on servers in ZoneB, the lower
policy should provide them access to it?

There won't be a conflict between the policies with the way they'd be
set above?

Why not apply a zone policy with an 'apply to' that also includes the
servers that these apps are on?

If you put that policy at a higher priority than the standard policies
it should kick in with its settings first.

Subject: [THIN] Zone Preference and Failover

Does Zone Preference and Failover only go to a backup group if the
servers in the primary zone are physically unreachable? Or will it
failover under high load situations?

I have a situation where I need to use zone preference to isolate
different groups of users to different zones, but I have some users who
need to cross both zones.  I don't want those users crossing the zones
for applications like MS Office, only specific applications made
available on each zones servers.

Right now, a user who is primary group zone 1 and backup group for zone
2, can launch the app that is only made available on a server in zone 2,
but I'm not sure if some situation cause them to start launching
applications like Outlook in zone 2 (as that app is available on servers
in both zones).
