network load balancing still connecting to server that is no longer in cluster

I have network load balancing configured and had two nodes in the cluster. I have removed the cluster and created a new one. In the new one I just added one of the two previous nodes. It has converged and appears to be working. When I visit the load balanced IP address inside my network, I get the correct node. However, when i visit the load balanced IP address over a VPN connection, the old node is the only one I get connected too. Even though this node is no longer in the cluster.

Why is this happening? How can i correct it so that VPN users will get the current node int he cluster?

Thanks,

Justin

Did you have some type of session persistence/sticky session setup?

If so, how?  A cookie that may need to be cleared from the remote computers maybe?

Thanks for the post. I ended up resolving it by adding the missing node to the load balance configuration. Then I removed it. After I did that, the connections over the VPN started connecting to the node that was still in the load balancer.

I simply added the second node to the load balance configuration. This must of refreshed it somehow. Then I removed the one I did not want users connecting to and they started connecting to the correct one.
