NLB + Remote Desktop services farm


I have got 3 terminal servers, with NLB i want to create load balacing so when one host crashes that the end users doenst notice anything (like they do with dns round robin)

All machines are windows 2008 r2.
All machines have 2 networkcards.

One public network: (gateway

One dedicated NLB network: (no gateway)
This network is on a dedicated vlan.

Now i have tried many things and followed many blogs but i can get it working..
The latest on i tried was this one:

So i have added all servers in all hosts files pointing to the range.

How should i configure it? I want all the traffic unicast?Multicast? going through the NLB network interfaces..

I believe you need clustering not NLB for this to work.

it is best practise to use round robin or NLB for terminal server loadbalancing
