NLB Management Tool Hangs RRS feed

  • Question

  • When adding 6 ip Addresses into the NLB, the Management Tool (Network Load Balancing Manager) access both nodes without any delay on a Windows Server 2008 R2 - Enterprise Edition, but after adding/binding 3 additional ip Addresses the Management Tool hour glasses momentarily for about 1 minute.  And the second node hangs at applying user settings and applying group policy registry settings when logon takes place.  

    However, the management tool accesses both nodes in the NLB without delay.

    Furthermore, if roles are reversed between node 1 and node 2 the issue is identical, but on the opposite nodes.

    Is this actually normal or is there an issue with the NLB?

    I removed the NLB entirely from both nodes; which requires a reboot.  Then added feature back afterwards, resulting with the same issue.

    Any suggestions - Or is there a break fix patch available.  And or will this require a complete rebuild of both nodes?

    Thanks!
