Network Load Balancing (NLB) Windows 2008
Posted on 2008-11-10
Here is my question regarding NLB, it is fairly straight forward but I am running into some issues with connectivity. This is a first for me trying this to setup a Web Farm using NLB. So here is my situation... I have 2 Nics one is my public side NAT and the other is my Internal, I use both at this time.
I have installed NLB but have not sected it in the network properties, I choose the public nic in the NLB manager and set the dedicated IP as the public nic static IP address lets say 192.168.1.11 (I use this to remote in via RDP) I set the virtual IP lets say 192.168.1.10 I am using unicast, once this is enabled, problem 1: I can no longer use the .11 address to RDP in. Problem 2: When I add the second host 192.168.1.12 I get error that host A or Host B is misconfigured, usually followed by a network error that the IP address is already in use. Am I missing a step in this process?
