Load Balancing ?
Posted on 2014-04-05
I have a domain controller with the following settings on it. (It is a virtual Image on Hyper-V 2012 R2
I have the home folders for the users on that DC and I have a legacy application that is running on it.
Unfortunately the application can not be moved (or the least to say is that it would be difficult to.
I have sometimes bottleneck on the server due to heavy network load due to users copying from their homefolders videos and large pictures.. as well as the application that suffers the performance then...
I was exploring the option to create another VM ,install windows 2012 R2 on it and just make it for the homefolders for the users.
Do u think it will help "splitting" the load ? If yes how can I change by script the homefolders of users and instead of it being \\data-srv1\users\UserXX to becomde \\Data-srv2\users\UserXX
Can I do this without "breaking" my Active Directory and keep my security rights for each homefolders ?
If not what can I do ?
