I recently took on day-to-day IT management of our Brocade (Foundry) ServerIron's deployed in a BlueCoat Proxy SG caching environment. Can someone update me on how to add or remove a BlueCoat Proxy SG without affecting the current operations of the ServerIron and the other operational BlueCoat proxy SGs?"

To add a new proxy SG, perform the following steps:
1) Add a new cache server with ports to be cached
a. server cache-name <NAME for Cache Server> <IP Address>
2) Add the new cache server to the group cache
a. server cache-group 2
hash-mask 255.255.255.255 0.0.0.255
cache-name <Name of cache server>
3) Add the following statement, if it is not there already: server force-cache-rehash (this statement causes the ServerIron to re-hash the load balancing when a cache server is added into the group)
To remove proxy SG, perform the following steps:
1) If the server is not down already (in which the server will be already removed cache group rotation), go to the cache server that you want to remove and type disable. This will allow connection draining until the server can be completely disabled.
Remove the server from the cache-group and remove the cache server from the configuration
