I will give the link a try, I did follow another step guide as that guide used 2 nic cards, It looks like this method only uses one, so does it matter to have 2 nic or will NLB run very happily useing 1 card in each host.  Also if you use 1 nic do you use unicast or milticast..  Thanks

Help I cannot delete the old CAR that was set up, I have used the remove-ClientAccessArray but it asks fot the Identity. But as you can see it shortens the name down and i cannot fully remember what it was I prieviously entered,Is there any way i can get to find the complete name that was used,.

Thanks
