    Network Load Balance problem

    Hi all

    I am trying to use load balancing between two windows 2003 servers and a
    windows xp client and all three are running IIS. The following is the
    config:

    SERVER-A : 192.168.2.1 - leasing DHCP IP from 192.168.2.5-100
    SERVER-B : 192.168.2.2
    PC-A : 192.168.2.6

    I created a cluster with the IP 192.168.3.1 but I am having problems to add
    the hosts to it. I also created a A record in DNS for the cluster. This is a
    screenshot of the problem :

    Can anyone illuminate me as to what might be the problem?

    thanks!

    others...

    Hi
    In NLB configuration use static address, XP cannot be part of this
    configuration, only servers.

    If you are trying to say you are using a WinXP box to be part of the cluster
    it won't work. WinXP doesn't contain code to do this, that I am aware of.

    hi again
    thanks for your help i managed to get the NLB to work. i set it on my w2k3
    servers on IIS and is working perfectly.
    only problem is that when i close the NLB manager it is loosing all
    configuration, and when i reopen it again it says something on unicast
    etc...my hosts are all set as multicast and NLB protocol is bound on all
    servers so i dont know exactly what problem is.
    i had to export host list and had to import it and leave the manager open
    all the time...
    is there a way how i can close the nlb manager without loosing all config?
    thanks a million!!

    -Are you sure that you loose all config?
    -Did you checked in the NIC card directly?

    What normally happens is that the NLB console doesn't save the host list,
    witch is different from loosing configuration at NIC level. To save this
    configuration you use NLB console and choose save configuration hosts file
    (or something like that).
