I have a cluster running windows 2003 server which are in a Catalyst 3750 stack and belong to VLAN 6 named "servers".The Network Load Balancing cluster hosts are connected to the Ethernet stack switch (3750)
which is connected to a centralized Ethernet Routing Switch (Catalyst 4510R)using a interface port-channel. Clients are connected to Catalyst 4510R directly and others layer 2 swichtes Catalyst. I want to deploy Microsoft Network Load Balancing using mode Multicast. How can I do it?. What configuration have I to do in the switches (Catalyst 4510R and 3750)?.
Hi... I have not worked with Microsoft NLB, but I have worked on a network that required clustered servers using Multicast MAC address connected to Cisco switches. I found that the only way we could make it work was to create static MAC/CAM entries for the Multicast MAC on all switches that need to connect to the clustered hosts. Pain the backside! Furthermore, we also found that we even had to create static ARP entries for the clustered hosts on the Multilayer switches.
Due to the political nature of the network, we had not tried setting up a Multicast tree to see if it could help...

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
