Configuration for gslb config resource.


(click to see Operations )

Name Data Type Permissions Description
preview Read-write Do not synchronize the GSLB sites, but display the commands that would be applied on the slave node upon synchronization. Mutually exclusive with the Save Configuration option.
debug Read-write Generate verbose output when synchronizing the GSLB sites. The Debug option generates more verbose output than the sync gslb config command in which the option is not used, and is useful for analyzing synchronization issues.
forcesync Read-write Force synchronization of the specified site even if a dependent configuration on the remote site is preventing synchronization or if one or more GSLB entities on the remote site have the same name but are of a different type. You can specify either the name of the remote site that you want to synchronize with the local site, or you can specify All Sites in the configuration utility (the string all-sites in the CLI). If you specify All Sites, all the sites in the GSLB setup are synchronized with the site on the master node.

Note: If you select the Force Sync option, the synchronization starts without displaying the commands that are going to be executed.
nowarn Read-write Suppress the warning and the confirmation prompt that are displayed before site synchronization begins. This option can be used in automation scripts that must not be interrupted by a prompt.
saveconfig Read-write Save the configuration on all the nodes participating in the synchronization process, automatically. The master saves its configuration immediately before synchronization begins. Slave nodes save their configurations after the process of synchronization is complete. A slave node saves its configuration only if the configuration difference was successfully applied to it. Mutually exclusive with the Preview option.
command Read-write Run the specified command on the master node and then on all the slave nodes. You cannot use this option with the force sync and preview options.

Some options that you can use for each operations:

  • Getting warnings in response: NITRO allows you to get warnings in an operation by specifying the 'warning' query parameter as 'yes'. For example, to get warnings while connecting to the NetScaler appliance, the URL is as follows:

    http:// <netscaler-ip-address> /nitro/v1/config/login?warning=yes

    If any, the warnings are displayed in the response payload with the HTTP code '209 X-NITRO-WARNING'.

  • Authenticated access for individual NITRO operations: NITRO allows you to logon to the NetScaler appliance to perform individual operations. You can use this option instead of creating a NITRO session (using the login object) and then using that session to perform all operations,

    To do this, you must specify the username and password in the request header of the NITRO request as follows:

    X-NITRO-USER: <username>

    X-NITRO-PASS: <password>

    Note: In such cases, make sure that the request header DOES not include the following:

    Cookie:NITRO_AUTH_TOKEN= <tokenvalue>

*Note: * Mandatory parameters are marked in red and placeholder content is marked in green


URL: http:// <netscaler-ip-address> /nitro/v1/config/gslbconfig? action=sync HTTP Method: POST

Request Headers:

Cookie:NITRO_AUTH_TOKEN= <tokenvalue>


Request Payload:



Response: HTTP Status Code on Success: 200 OK

HTTP Status Code on Failure: 4xx <string> (for general HTTP errors) or 5xx <string> (for NetScaler-specific errors). The response payload provides details of the error
