I have two servers that will host a web application. The web application is accessible through an internet browser on port 80. Its a simple app but will have many users at any given time. The only thing I need to accomplish is network load balancing and failover.
The servers are identical and will access their data from a common source. So far I configured Window's "Network Load Balancing" with a common IP and DNS name for the two servers. From a remote browser I can access the web app using the NLB IP address. If I shut one of the servers off I can still hit the one that's up with the NLB address. My questions are: Do I need to do anything else or is Window's "Network Load Balancing" enough? How can I check how many and which users are connected to each server?
