Network Load Balance in BizTalk

    Question

  • Hi All,

    following is my senario, we have two biztalk nodes on same BizTalk Group, Group was configured on SQL-Cluster(Active-Pasive).

    In my DNS, network administrator configured hardware NLB, and configured my BizTalk nodes IPs on NLB provided us load balancer IP.

    my question is "Do I need to install and configure the windows network load balance on BizTalk both nodes with load balancer IP?". or simple create hosts and hostinstances for separete nodes?

    I have to maintain load balance for following Adapters.

    HTTP(WCFBasicHTTP),SOAP, File, WCF-SQL.

    Please help me.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Teegala.

  • Since you have an external hardware NLB you DO NOT need to install Windows NLBS.

    To get your HTTP/SOAP/WCF Receive Endpoints to get Load Balanced, you'd need to ensure that your IIS on BOTH the nodes is identically configured. On the BizTalk You need to have the same Receive Host Instances on BOTH the nodes. The external NLB would do the rest.
