Hi Everyone,

I’m having a weird issue with my current Terminal Server VM nodes connectivity on Windows 2003 Enterprise SP2, which has been successfully converged and deployed as Unicast NLB with the following configuration:

Hostname: TS1
IP: 10.1.1.150
IP2 NLB Enabled: 10.1.2.95
Host Priority: 1

Hostname: TS2
IP: 10.1.1.242
IP2 NLB Enabled: 10.1.2.96
Host Priority: 2

And I have already created the
Virtual Cluster name: TerminalServer.domain.com
Virtual Cluster IP address: 10.1.2.97

When both servers are ON, user will be randomly allocated to either TS1 or TS2

When the TS1 server is turned OFF
ping to TS1 is dropped obviously
ping to Virtual Cluster IP address is still OK
remote desktop is failed to connect / redirect to TS2 which it should have.

When the TS2 server is turned OFF
ping to TS2 is dropped obviously
ping to Virtual Cluster IP address is still OK
remote desktop is failed to connect / redirect to TS1 which it should have.

Can anyone please let me know what to do here please?

Is this a new deployment? e.g. has this ever worked successfully?

Check your external networking has not changed.
