If i've got 3 pcs in a network load balancing cluster in win server 2k3 web edition - do they present as three separate computers?  or one virtual pc?

i.e. if i'm running an asp.net application - and i want to install a new .aspx file on my webserver - do I have to put that file on all three servers making up the virtual server?  or can i put it straight onto my virtual server?  does the virtual server have some sort of itnerface?

what about file shares?  i.e. if I want my virtual server to access a network disk on teh network and i want to map a network drive for my webservers to access - do i have to map this drive manually on all the pc's in my network load balanced cluster?  or do i just configure it some how on the virtual server?

They present as three seperate, unique, individual servers.

If you want to install an application on you load balanced web site you will need to install it on each server.

I hope when you say map a drive you are actually referring to using a UNC path since it is not a good idea to use mapped drives with IIS.
In any case, yes youwould need to set up each server to access the remote content.

The only way to treat it as one machine wuld be to use some sort of management software that will replicate your changes onto each machine.  Application Center 2000 has this capability to a point but there is a signifcant pricetag attached to it as well.

I doubt this is the answer you really wanted but I'm afraid it's the correct one.

Hope this helps.
