Load Balancing on Linux.

Dear EE,

I have two web servers

1) Windows 2008 R2 (IIS)
2) Windows 2008 R2 (IIS)

Our application is installed on these two machine.

Now we want to make NETWORK LOAD BALANCING  but not on the windows. So we choose Red Hat Linux.

Can you please help me how can i do this.

Special Thanks

Hi

If your plan is to load balance the IIS servers, using a third device in this case a RHEL; then you can do this using apache

Take a look to this links

This error indicates that you are not subscribed to RHN ( Red Hat Network),  if you buy it the RHEL you must have a serial number that you will need to subscribe it; also an account will be need it ( account in RHN )

Take a look to this link https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite/5.3/html/Reference_Guide/ch-register.html 

described how to register you server.

If you need a free repository then you will need to use a Centos repository

take a look this: http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/rhel5-fedora-core-add-new-yum-repository.html

Dear Pepe2323,

Excellent....I do not think my version is registered. its 4:00 AM morning in office and no one is available in support department.

So if my RHN is not registered do you suggest to move to Centos Operating system.

Is it possible for you to join the GTM to see my error.

I would suggest using HAProxy which is designed as a load balancer, rather than trying to load balance in Apache...
