Hi All,

Is there any reason as to why Windows Server 2003 Unicast NLB clustered server (running Terminal Server 2003) is configured with 2x vNIC and each of them connected to two different IP address class or VLANs ?

The server is deployed as Vmware Virtual Machine and I wonder if the IP address can be on the same VLAN for the simplicity of migration sake ?

Any thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated,
