When you have a NLB environment with SharePoint, there are sometimes occasions where you will need to manually add an entry to the Windows HOSTS file on each machine.  I have noticed that in some instances where access becomes really slow is because the NLB servers are looking to the NLB IP address rather than just their local IP.

So, on each machine, open the Windows HOSTS file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS).  Than add an entry for each site collection URL to the specific server IP of the machine.

So, if machine 1 is 10.10.10.10 and the site URL is http://site, add this to the end of the file:

10.10.10.10 site

You need to do this on each of the NLB nodes for each respective server IP address.

maybe I'm assuming something I shouldn't be.

You are telling me that you have NLB (netowrk load balancing) set up, which leads me to believe that you have two web front end servers serving SharePoint sites.  Is this correct?  Or do you have one WFE server and one APP server?

When you set up NLB you have to make a connnection to both front end servers.  That's why I'm asking you did you verify you set both up exactly the same?

you may have to create static routes in your switches when using multicast since your NIC's will have two MAC addresses.  I'm not a networking guy so can't give much specifics here.
