We have 2 windows server 2003 (enterprise) machines set up.
Server 1
---------------
1 local area network with IP - 169.254.49.86
1 wireless NIC with IP - 192.168.50.104

Server 2
--------------
1 local area network with IP - 169.254.25.80
1 wireless NIC with IP - 192.168.50.105

Virtual IP (or cluster IP)
192.168.50.110

Both the machines have iis set up. I have created a page index.htm on each of these servers where they only display their respective server names.






On server 1 I have set up the NLB manager and added both the hosts. They have converged and I dint have any problems doing this.



But only server is servicing all requests despite both of the hosts being up and converged in NLB cluster.

The affinity I have chosen is NONE.
And I have set the mode to unicast mode


Irrespective of how many times I access using the virtual IP only server 1 is servicing the request. Load balancing is not happening even if I stop the server 1.

Only the following is displayed when I access the virtual IP:



Nothing seems to set this problem right.
