Network Load Balance

How To Perform Basic Network Load
Balancing Procedures in Windows Server
2003

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816111/en-us
SUMMARY

This step-by-step article describes how to perform basic Network Load Balancing
procedures. When you use Network Load Balancing, you can spread incoming
requests across many servers. When you do so, you can expand enterprise-wide
services, such as Web servers, Terminal Services, and streaming media servers, to
make sure that the services respond quickly, even under heavy loads.

Network Load Balancing automatically detects when a server stops responding and quickly reassigns client traffic among the remaining servers. This safeguard helps you provide uninterrupted, continuous service for your critical business programs.

How to Perform Network Load Balancing Procedures
This section describes how to perform the following basic Network Load
Balancing procedures:
\u2022Stop Network Load
Balancing
\u2022Disable Network Load
Balancing
\u2022 Enable multicast support
To Stop Network Load Balancing

\u2022At a command prompt:
1. ClickSt art, clickR un, type cmd in theOpe n box, and then clickOK.
2. Type wlbs stop, and then press ENTER.

Cluster operations are immediately stopped on the local cluster host. If you
want to stop cluster operations on all cluster hosts, type either of the
following commands, wherei p_addre ss is the Internet Protocol (IP) address of

the cluster andn ame is the name of the cluster:
\u2022
wlbs stop
ip_address
-or-
\u2022 wlbs stopn ame
\u2022
From the Network Load Balancing Manager utility:
1.Start the Network Load Balancing Manager utility, and then connect to the

cluster that you want to modify.
2. Under the cluster container, click the host that you want to stop.
3. On theHo st menu, point to Control Host, and then clickSt op.

To Disable Network Load Balancing
1.Start the Network Load Balancing Manager utility, and then connect to the
cluster where you want to remove Network Load Balancing.
2. Right-click the cluster, and then click Delete Cluster.
3.ClickYe s to remove Network Load Balancing from all the hosts that are
members of the cluster.
If you cannot use Network Load Balancing Manager, you can remove Network Load
Balancing through the network connections properties of each host. To do so:
1.Log on to the host computer as an administrator, and then double-clickNe t wo rk
Connections in Control Panel.
2.Right-click the local area network connection where Network Load Balancing is
installed, and then clickP ro pe rt ie s.
3. Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then clickP rope rt ie s.
4.
Remove the primary IP address for the cluster.

If the primary IP address for the cluster is in the Advanced TCP/IP Settings dialog box, clickAdv ance d, and then remove the primary IP address for the cluster, and then remove any other cluster IP addresses that appear.

5.ClickOK, clickOK, and then clickCl o se to return to the Network Connections
dialog box.
6. Right-click the local area network connection that you previously edited, and then
clickP ro pe rt ie s.
7. Click to clear the Network Load Balancing check box, and then clickOK.
To Enable Multicast Support
1.
Start the Network Load Balancing Manager utility, and then connect to the cluster
that you want to modify.
2.Right-clickcl u ste rn ame (wherecl u ste rn ame is the name of your cluster), and then
click Cluster Properties.
3. Under Cluster operation mode, clickMult icast, and then clickOK.
4.On the message that states that the traffic mode will be changed from unicast to
multicast, clickYes.
Troubleshooting
\u2022

When you use the wlbs stop command or when you use the Network Load
Balancing Manager to stop a cluster host, client computer connections that are
already in progress may be interrupted. To avoid interrupting active connections,
use theDrainst o p cluster control command.

\u2022To start the Network Load Balancing utility at a command prompt, type nlbmgr,
and then press ENTER.
How To Configure Network Load Balancing
Parameters in Windows Server 2003
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc721929.aspx?wa=wsignin1.0
SUMMARY
This step-by-step article describes how to configure Network Load Balancing
parameters in Windows Server 2003.

You can use Network Load Balancing to spread incoming requests across as many
as 32 servers. You can do so to expand enterprise-wide services, such as Web
servers, Terminal Services, and streaming-media servers. Network Load Balancing
also makes sure that your servers respond quickly, even under heavy loads. It does
this by automatically detecting when a server stops working, and then quickly
reassigning client traffic among the remaining servers. This safeguard can help you
provide uninterrupted, continuous service for your critical business programs.
