NLB - Session Host Configuration

Last Modified: 2014-05-02

We recently purchased a Barracuda LB 340Vx for our terminal server load balancing.

I have configured the unit based on the guidelines provided in this link.

The load balancing feature is working as it should, however there is a quirky problem I am seeing upon initial connection. When I enter the Virtual IP address for the LB, it directs me to a server in the farm, then redirect's me again to another farm server before allowing me to log on.

Once I get logged on, I can reconnect with the same user from another machine and reopen the same session, as intended.


- Open mstsc.exe
- Connect to : x.x.x.x
- Shows connecting to Srvr1. Accept unregistered cert.
- Now points me to Srvr2 or Srvr3, accept again and we connect to the second server.

Any help that can be provided would be great.
