Hi,

Each server will need a separate IP address and a single VIP address for the farm if load balancing them.

Where are the web servers? In a DMZ?

I have 3 servers, they all have IIS, ARR has been configured.

I am assuming that when Making the Web Farm, when adding servers, I have to give it the IP of the websites on each of the servers.

But how do you call the Farm? Where do I set an IP for the Farm itself?

I am trying to have load balance and fail over. So the websites are balanced, and dont go down if 1 server fails.

I am using IIS Shared Configuration.

Hi,

In that case, it can all be done via ARR, each server will still require it's own IP.
Are they 2012 R2?

See this article for more details:

If you follow the steps here you'll be fine.
