Hello Experts,

    I have a situation of 4 workstations connected via a cisco 1242ag access point.  These machines are not connected to an internet connection or any other network.  Two of the 4 workstations are running apache webserver with mysql database.  The other two machines are clients.  I am wanting to point the clients to the main workstation to serve a single webpage, but if that station is down or not online I want the client to connect to the other workstation to pull the same webpage.  All of the stations are running Windows XP Professional with apache, php, and mysql.

Thanks for any advise,

Set your DNS to roundrobin and use that with both IPs entered for the DNS name

It is not the best, but it is the cheapest solution.

You could also look into load balancing software or hardware that can do this.

I hope this helps !

SysExpert,


   Thank You for your suggestions.  I have ended up using two db servers and submitting data to both databases at the same time.
