Hard limit on whitelist for deployment server



Is there a hard limit on the number of servers you can have per whitelist class
Seems I cant add more then ten, does that sound right ???

Question bump ... "Is there a hard limit on the number of servers you can have per whitelist class?"

We are looking at needing a whitelist of over 2000... (don't ask why ... cause a sane man to go crazy). Will this even work or will deployment server performance just go into the tank?

I have never seen a whitelist of this size. I don't think it will work. However, would it be possible to create some DNS entries to name classes of servers (assigned to a number of ip addresses) (assigned to a different set of ip addresses)


and then use the DNS names in your whitelist? (I haven't tried this either, so I suggest a small test first.)

Another possibility is to have a fan-out of deployment servers - although this may be as big a headache as a whitelist of over 2000...

the web interface allows you to add entries beyond 10 (whitelist.9) but they do not show up in the serverclass.conf file. I do not know if this is a limit or a bug in the webUI - it seems to me the webUI should remove the "add" button when you hit the limit if this is the case.

I think the naming goes whitelist.0 whitelist.1 ... whitelist.9 whitelist.a whitelist.b ... whitelist.z

But I can't find anything in the manuals that confirms that. Try it and see.

Is this still applicable in 6.x? Looking to manage deployment clients and will need to support several thousand on each DS.
