I'm having a bit of trouble getting Windows Server 2003 network load balancing working correctly.
At the moment it's running in a virtualised setup for testing / learning how; but will eventually be actual servers.
I've gone in to network load balancing manager and set up a new cluster called "tcservers" - ip x.x.x.1
and added 2 virtual hosts each with 2 network cards. I've selected Local Area Connection 2 for both, and given:
tc_server1 the ip x.x.x.100 (conn 2); priority = 1
tc_server2 the ip x.x.x.101 (conn 2); priority = 2
i've set a rule for the cluster of start: 3389; end:3389; Protocol: both; Mode: Multiple; Load: Equal; Affinity:None;
If i try and Remote Desktop to tcservers it puts me through to tc_server1, when it trys to send me to tc_server2 it times out. I've added entries in DNS for both.
On tc_server2 checking the local area connection, shows a lot of out-going traffic, but virtually nothing coming in (8 packets in 17hrs)
