I have two Idetical Telnet servers , each has two network card .
The server is running windows 2000 advanced server.
I'm trying to do load balancing between the two server using MS load balancing . I read the procedure for that from microsoft web site.
but it didnot work with me , this is what I have did :
server 1 : dedicated IP : 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.0
server 2 : dedicated IP : 184.108.40.206 255.255.255.0
in MS load balancing parameters I used : 220.127.116.11 as a virtual IP
also I used multicast mode , all the port s allowed
the two servers is connected to two ports in 6509 switch , I cannot ping the virual IP ... not even from the server it self !!!
can some body help me in this , this is the first time I do MS load balancing.
Also if somebody know , is there is away to load balance between the two servers without using any software ..I mean is there is a LAYER 2 load balncing that can be done on the 6509 between the two ports.
There is a known issue with MSLB. I found it about a year or so ago. I could not find my notes on it, but one of the reqs (from what I remember) is to configure a static arp entry for your VIP in the switch, not quite sure how that works out, but there is information posted on CCO and Microsoft for this exact issue.
