  • terminal server Load balancing

    I just started with a company and they want me to setup network load balancing with terminal services. I have two 2003 servers with enterprise ed and the applications installed. I just need some guidance on setting up the load balancing cluster.
    Thanks

    Seems like a pretty well covered subject:

    Do a little reading and come back with some more specific questions / problems.
    Cheers,

        I had a tough time trying to implement Microsoft's NLB. I have 4 TS servers and 105 HP thin clients.
        After few weeks of sweating, I went to 3rd party solutions. I since use 2X Load Balancer, and I am very satisfied. I know, it's not free, but its implementation was a two-hour effort.

          I had no problem with Microsoft's NLB cluster once I realised you could do it for certain ports, and that I must be an enterprise admin to do almost ANYTHING to do with it.

            also please place you're NLB servers in a separate VLAN.
            This because all traffic to the NLB servers will be spoofed over all you're ports within its vlan.

              This was one of the biggest problems. VLAN definition would have raised, in my case, other issues.

              This was another problem, I'm not. And that meant being dependant of someone else, that I don't trust (from the professional point of view). Two weeks ago I got the proof, when a BAT he wrote wiped out 4 of my servers.
              I am not saying that NLB does not work, it's price () really makes you sweat a bit before going for another solution.

                  No, all my network is switched.
                  The point is that all the network infrastructure is not in my hands. The people in charge of it rose the VLAN as a possibility. Our network is built in such a way, that defining a VLAN across all of it was not something easy to achieve and it would arise some dangerous scenarios.
                  So my boss dropped the issue and we went for the 2X solution.
