Hi i have 2 vmware machines with Apache. They are on NLB cluster.  the nodes A and B have two different pages ( just to test LB) . PageA and PageB.
when i do http:// <clusterIP >    ( from node B) it is always PageB the page that comes up.
when i do http:// <clusterIP > from node A i get Page A
When i do http://<cluster IP> from any other machine i always get PageB.
Both machines have converged.

Any ideas ?

did you try stopping each node in NLB and test which page comes up?

NLB does not do 'round robin' it goes to server with host priority 1.  As requests go up it will distribute those requests based on the algorithm in NLB.

this can be played with in 'Port Rules'
