Hello Experts

how can I identify a multicast mac address associated with the vip of Windows network load balancer cluster?

Is there a powershell cmdlet of from GUI to identify multicast mac address associated with the VIP of Windows network load balancer?

I have a windows network load balancer 2008 both nodes are 2008 R2, and multicast.

Each VM has one ip and the VIP associated is the one where I need to get the multicast mac address

I do not beleive there are any cmdlets to get exactly what you are looking for. However you can use the following command to get info from the network adapter settings from a computer using powershell.

Get-WMIObject -computername <compname> -class Win32_NetworkAdapter | select Name,MACAddress, AdapterType

Open in new window

The below link illustrates how to identify what your Multicast MACAddress should resemble.
