Hello there,

I need to find out quickly what I need and dont have the time to go through it so hopefully someone here can give me the basics.

I have a number of Citrix Web Interfaces server, I need to load balance them or the requests to them. My whole Citrix solution is virtualised on VMWare vSphere 4.1. The OS is Windows 2008 R2 and the Citrix backend in XenApp 6.0.

I don't have a Hardware load balancer I can use right now so I need to use something like Windows Load balancing, maybe Citrix has something, don't know.

If I use Windows LB, what exactly do I need. How many servers and what would be the basic config (just high level).

Thanks

if you want to use windows load balancing...
you will need two windows servers. you already have one...
create a second windows vm.
install network load balancing...create a virtual ip address that has two nodes. thats it.
you now have two windows nodes under nlb.

this is a very high level explanation - since you asked for it
(just so - if you arent sure about how to install nlb on windows, see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/clustering/archive/2009/12/05/9932877.aspx)
