Hi There,

I have some web application that I developed and I published the app on one of my internal IIS server.

What I'm trying to do now is to publish the the application on another IIS server and fail-over between two IIS server.

There is any solution by DNS level?  I was trying cnam which give me option to direct to just one server.

thanks ,

At the DNS level, there isn't an automated way to do it.  Normally, you could have multiple entries for a name... but it'd use round robin, not at all the failover solution.
Normally, I'd see IIS servers setup behind a Windows Network Load Balancer.
Theoretically, if you really wanted to do it with DNS, you could set the TTL to be very short on this record.  Then write a script to check whether the application is still available, and if it isn't... update the DNS record to point the name to the server you're failing over to.

I went with the load balancing solution.
