Windows Network Load Balancing

I would like to know it is possible to change the Priority in NLB. Say, I have Server A and Server B. Server A with Priority no.1 while server B is no. 2. Now I would to change server B become no. 1 and server A become no. 2.

I did tried on Server A only priority no. 3 available no. 2 is not available since already taken by server B. How to change the priority? Shall I:

1. Change the priority on Server A to no.3. Wait for a while (how long I shall I wait?)
2. Change the priority on Server B to no.1
3. Change the priority on Server A to no.2

Please advice. I have no lab to the testing.

If you change them both at the same time, you cause network blips.

If done out of hours, you shouldnt notice any problems (I accidently set 2 of mine to 1 and it worked but was slow)...

However, if you want to play safe, change A to 3, after a few seconds it updates, then change B to 1 and again after a few seconds you change A to 2...
