Windows 2008 R2 Network Load Balancing and Exchange 2010
Posted on 2011-02-23
I'm try to setup my first NLB using Windows 2008 R2. I have setup a 2003 cluster before. Anyway, I have two servers that will be used to form my CAS Array.
I have two NIC teamed that are connected to the main lan
and One that directly connect to the other server via a cross over cable for use as the heart beat.
Here are my questions.
1) I have followed all of the online instrustions on how to setup a CAS Array. If one of my cas server in the array were to fail. WOuld those users who's sessions were associated with that cas server lose there connection? Would they be able to reconnect through the other cas server
2) I cannot ping my Virtual NLB name or IP I made sure port forwardin is enabled on my LAN connection
3) how can I monitor how much load is one each NLB node
4) for a EXchagne 2010 I have ready the port affinity should be "SINGLE" is this correct
