Network Load Balancing Basics
Posted on 2006-11-12
I am trying to get to the bottom of using NLB under Windows 2003 and IIS6.
I am pretty clear on the initial setup of the cluster. After this is done, I understand that I have to manually sync the IIS metabase and the underlying files for the websites.
From then on in, do you have to continually sync the Metabase and the files on the HDD?
If so, how do you tackle this? Do you schedule a sync of the metabase every xx minutes, or do you train people making changes to the websites to kick this off?
Do you do the same sort of schedule with the files, or is there some tool that you can use to detect file changes and make sure they are copied server to server immediately?
