NLB members : mix of VM & physical servers
Posted on 2013-06-06
Understand that to create an MS NLB cluster which have all VMs as
its members, it has to be a multicast NLB plus static ARP entries
to be defined in all switches & uplink switch ports.
We currently have 3 physical Crystal report servers (all of which
also act as print servers) : suppose we P2V'ed only one of them,
can we shut down the P2V'ed physical server & then make this
VM a member of the NLB cluster. This NLB cluster is an existing
NLB previously with the 3 physical servers in it.
Any special settings needed like setting the NLB to multicast or
special settings on the LAN switches?
