I have set up 2 W2K3 IIS servers running NLB. Server 'IIS1' has the priority set as 1. Server 'IIS2' has the priority set to 2. However, unless I take IIS2 offline, it is the server that always takes the web page request. Once I take it offline, it fails over to IIS1 without any problems.
Shouldn't the IIS1 be the one that takes the request since it's priority is set to 1? I tried reversing the order, and still IIS2 is the dominant one. Is this typical? In reality, it doesn't really matter, I suppose. It could be a misconfiguration issue on my part, as this is the first time I've tried to set this up. Any insight would be appreciated.
