  • Building a Windows Server 2008 Network Load Balancing Cluster - Techotopia
    is not a problem in the case of a Single Host configuration described above clearly problems may arise if a client is diverted to a different cluster node partway through a session since the new server will not have access to the session state Windows Server 2008 Network Load Balancing addresses this issue by providing a number of client affinity configuration options Client affinity involves the tracking of both destination port and source IP address information to optionally ensure that all traffic to a specific port from a client is directed to the same server in the cluster The available Client affinity settings are as follows Single Requests from a single source IP address are directed to the same cluster node Network Requests originating from within the same Class C network address range are directed to the same cluster node None No client affinity Requests are directed to nodes regardless of previous assignments Installing the Network Load Balancing Feature The first step in building a load balanced cluster is to install the Network Load Balancing feature on each server which is to become a member of the cluster This can be achieved by starting the Server Manager tool selecting Features from the left panel and then clicking on the Add Features link In the list of available features select Network Load Balancing and click on Next followed by Install Network Load Balancing may also be installed from a command prompt with elevated privileges right click on the command prompt in the Start menu and select Run as administrator by running the servermanagercmd install nlb command For example C Windows system32 servermanagercmd install nlb Start Installation Installation Succeeded Network Load Balancing 100 100 Success Installation succeeded Once installation is complete both the graphical Network Load Balancing Manager and the command line NLB Cluster Control Utility nlbmgr exe and nlb exe respectively will be installed ready for use Building a Windows Server 2008 Network Load Balanced Cluster Network Load Balanced clusters are built using the Network Load Balancing Manager which may be launched from the Start All Programs Administrative Tools menu or from a command prompt by executing nlbmgr Once loaded the manager will appear as shown in the following figure To pre configure the account and password credentials to be used on each node in the cluster select Options Credentials and enter an account and password Note that the account must be a member of the administrators group If default credentials are configured the user will be prompted for account and password information each time a connection to a cluster node is established To begin the cluster creation process right click on the Network Load Balancing Clusters entry in the left panel of the manager window and select the New Cluster menu option This will display the New Cluster connection dialog In this dialog enter either the name or IP address of the first server to be included in the load balanced cluster and press the Connect button to establish a
