NLB and fault tolerance.  Messing up sessions.

I have 2 web servers (Server A and Server B).  They are setup in an NLB cluster.  While they are both up, all of the traffic goes to one server and not the other.  I don't really care about that.  When Server A goes down, after about 15 seconds, requests begin to be served from Server B.  That is great.  The problem is that when server A comes back up, it will hijack all the sessions of Server B.  If someone is working in the App on B when A comes up, all traffic gets redirected to A and borks up the session.  I have affinity set, which from what I understand dedicates the session to a box.  Can someone tell me how to fix this please.

Thanks in advance.

Hmm, can you give me more details regarding your configuration?  I use NLB and don't have that problem at all.

The need for this answer has gone away.  As such, rather then delete the question, I am just going to give you some of the points.  Hope you don't mind.
