Loadbalancing Windows Media Server

Unanswered Question
Mar 4th, 2007


I was wondering if someone ever tried to loadbalance Windows Media Servers with an ACE blade. I know RTSP is supported by the ACE, but what about Microsoft MMS ?

Thanks for any comments or sample config


I have this problem too.

You can configure WLBS to load balance on multiple servers filtered to use single affinity, no affinity, or Class C. The best choice for Windows Media Server servers, which is a non-stateless application, is single affinity. When configured for single affinity, all incoming packets using the WLBS virtual IP address are locked to a specific node in the WLBS cluster. Every packet that is sent from the client using the cluster IP address connects to that node.
