We have 2 Windows 2008 R2 virtual servers running in Hyper V. We have NLB set up and working on those two virtual servers. I have set the NLB and it is working fine, no errors etc. I can Ping the IP of the cluster, but cannot ping the clusters 'full internet name'
NLB 1: 192.168.89.x
NLB 2: 192.168.89.x
Cluster IP: 192.168.89.174
Cluster 'full internet name': Cluster136
Cluster Operation Mode: Multicast
Port Rules set to allow all on the 192.168.89.174 address
Firewall set to allow all NLB traffic through.
I have added an A record in DNS and also added a reservation in DHCP to the cluster IP and MAC.
I have had a 'google' and cant find anything that relates directly to this. I dont have an issue with it not being able to resolve the name if it doesnt affect what we are doing, however I am being asked the question as to why the name cant be resolved. Is this how NLB is or have I dont something wrong?
