Description (partial)


On a serverfarm configured with predictor leastconns slowstart   (and possibly  failaction purge) a rserver that is in PROBE-FAILED status when becomes OPERATIONAL won't be put on slowstart mode, not even if it has 0 connections (for example due to failaction purge).
The server will be put in slowstart only if an operator will manually do no inservice and inservice

The configuration guide is correct but not explicit about it:
"To ensure that a failed server with existing connections enters slow-start mode when it is placed back in service, configure failaction purge"

The requested enhancement would be to have the rserver enter slowstart mode when becoming OPERATIONAL after PROBE-FAILED/ARP-FAILED status if it has 0 connections
