Achieving high availability for the web service with Windows Network Load Balancing

This appendix describes how to achieve high availability for the web service using the Network Load Balancing service.

The Network Load Balancing cluster requires a dedicated IP address and fully qualified domain name. This should be set up before installing the cluster. The fully qualified domain name will be used later to access the web service. This means that every host needs a certificate that is valid for the chosen fully qualified domain name and is trusted by each domain controller.

Hosts in a Network Load Balancing cluster require at least two network interface cards. The first network interface card should be for general communication and maintenance and the second network interface card should be dedicated to Network Load Balancing traffic.

To allow high availability in a Network Load Balancing cluster, you need multiple hosts installed and configured with the web service. These hosts should be dedicated to that task. Installing Network Load Balancing on domain controllers is not supported.

Example: Settings in this lab with network interface card (NIC) and fully qualified domain name (FQDN)

Host1 (Windows Server 2012 R2)



Host2 (Windows Server 2012 R2)
