How To Setup Microsoft Network Load Balance Unicast Mode 2008 R2 Server (Virtual)
Posted on 2013-11-22
Hi all, I am wondering if anyone has successfully setup NLB UNICAST mode on 2008 R2 servers in a virtual envirornment? If so, what was the trick? Do you require 2 NIC's? If so, does each NIC have to be on a seperate Port Group/vnic or NIC?
If not then why won't my one NIC solution allow me to add the second host? I can't even ping out from the first host once Unicast is enabled on Host 1.
I did add a second NIC to each host and tried that. The NIC was actually the same port group though. Servers get confused as to which IP is the LAN IP. Using this config, i was able to add each nost to cluster and reach the cluster from the 2 host, but no other server or workstation could reach the cluster or the cluster IP.
Is there any configs that have to be made on the Virtual Host networking?
Any help or suggestions would be most greatly appreciated.
