local director assistance

I am new to the cisco/router world.

We purchased a Local Director 417 IOS v4.2.1

I have followed the setup config for one virtual and multiple real servers.

Now, I have questions...

First, I can't get it to work.

-I have 2 W2K W/S with IIS running pages. these are my real servers.

QUESTION: On the local director, when I put in the NAME ( server1) is the "server1" the name of the server?

Second, the name command.

NAME domain. What do I put for the DOMAIN?


I feel dumb asking, but I know I'll feel dumber not asking...


Re: local director assistance

The name command is an optional command. Its just for ease of administration. The parameter that you specify in the name command is used to identify a virtual or real server. This makes it a lot easier to change the configuration. You can refer to the server (virtual or real) by name, rather than ip address. Thisname is not at all related to the DNS or real NETBIOS name of the actual server.

I am not understanding your second question.
