NLB Cluster : responding ( able to ping) evnthough we stopped the Cluster from NLB
Posted on 2007-04-10
I have created successfully the NLB cluster and able to communicate using the cluster (virtual) IP address.
This is on Windows 2003 and using Network Load Balancing Manger tool.
When I right click on host, say dev-abc(menmber of the cluster), it will show Control Host, which further shows Start, Stop, Supsend, Resume etc. When I clicked on Stop, the host dev-abc became red and the log pane below showing Host is Stopped.
The questions are as below.
1. When I stop NLB cluster, still I am able to ping the Vitrual IP Addr and using Clustername also.
2.Whlie the Cluster is successfully running, when I gave command "wlbs query cluster-name", it is giving the following error. But the host is showing "Converged" status in NLB Manager.
WLBS Cluster Control Utility V2.4 (c) 1997-2003 Microsoft Corporation.
Did not receive response from the cluster.
