  1. Start Network Load Balancing Manager.
  2. In the menu Cluster, click on New.
  3. Preform the following tasks in the window "New Cluster: Connect".
    1. Connect to your first host, e.g.: web01.democorp.com and click Connect.
    2. In the list of network interfaces, select Ethernet 2 - with the IP that is dedicated to Network Load Balancing and set to "static".

    4. Set the Affinity to match your requirements or leave it at "Single (*)".

Troubleshooting

When accessing https://ServiceCluster.democorp.com I receive an invalid certificate error in my browser.

Since you are not accessing each host by its real host name, you have to ensure that the SSL certificate was issued to the common name matching the cluster’s fully qualified domain name and that the fully qualified domain name is set in the Subject Alternative Names (SAN) field.

When accessing https://ServiceCluster.democorp.com Kerberos authentication fails.

Since you are accessing all servers in this cluster with the same fully qualified domain name, Kerberos authentication will fail. If you have NT Lan Manager disabled as fallback, authentication will not work.
