IOS SLB with Virtual Active Directory 2003 Server

Unanswered Question

I was wondering if I could create a Virtual AD Server 2003 using Cisco IOS SLB on CSM Module or Cisco 4400s. The end user will only login into the virtual Server IP address per session and at any time if one off the actual AD server is down, user are not affected at all. Also can I provide Virual ACS to be intergrated into the design.

I would say that this is impossible and isn?t necessary from AD functional point.

AD domain controller registers it?s settings in the DNS.

AD client looks up DNS in order to find AD domain controller.

If first found domain controller didn?t respond, AD clients looks up for the second domain controller from the DNS.

And so on.
