Trying to setup NLB between these 2 servers. Using Unicast.
I added the NLB feature and through the NLB Manager I add the Node A and when I try to add/connect to Node B ..It cannot find it. I cannot even ping it which I guess is normal because of unicast mode. I have a cross over cable on the second NIC of each server between both the nodes.
And if I turn both nodes to Multicast then I can add the nodes to the NLB Manager Console but then I am not able to access the Virtual IP from the LAN and the website does not come up. I cannot even ping the VIP from LAN.
I would like to have Unicast setup and able to add the nodes via the NLB Manager. I have no issue setting this up on Windows 2003. This is my first NLB on Windows 2008R2.
