So, after a busy couple of weeks I have finally got the time to revisit my Octoblu NetScaler automation.  In my last post I wrote about adding a server to a NetScaler using the NetScaler thing that Octoblu provide.  I wanted to take this a step further and start to look at getting some information back from the NetScaler.  This in itself would be of huge value if combined with configuring a NetScaler in the following scenario.

If you have a vServer that is showing as down in a certain datacenter, add additional servers to the load balancer in the other datacenter to cater for the incoming load.

So, here is how to get a vServer Status report from your NetScaler using Octoblu.
