Configuring Load balancer in WFE Trouble Shooting Sharepoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have configured small from my machine(Windows7) by using VMware.
    VM01 - Domain Controller/SQL Server2008
    VM02 - Application Server 1(Sharepoint2010)
    VM03 - WFE 1
    VM04 - WFE 2

    Configured loadblancer(Network Load balancer) for both WFE's and DNS is in VM01(Domain controller).

    1.I wanted to know how can i check that requests is going to these specific WFE(Just to check my loadbalancing is working properly)?
    2.How can i access the sites from the client machine,here i'm able to access central admin out side of VM but not the sites,But i'm able to access sites from the WFe's by adding host entry and registry edit-DisableLoopbackCheck.

  • Hi Anilkumar Loka,

    you have to create new DNS A Record for the URL of your web-application, which should be load-balanced. For this DNS record use VIP(Virtual IP) you have set in NLB.

    The second option is to insert record with web application URL and VIP into hosts file on client machine.

  • Hi,

    To enable the clients to access the site you need to create DNS for your Load balance IP

    To test your Load Balance try to (disable one node and test the site and then disable the second node and enable the first and test the site by Load Balance IP).
