    What will happen if I select “Do not use this machine to host the web site” in advanced settings?
    and When I create a site on machine1 and after sometimes server is down then will machine second works properly for that site. Should I create the same site on both the machine?

    I stopped SharePoint site on IIS of server 1 (farm server) and access the site from Cluster IP then it was working fine… but when stopped server 2 and starts server 1 then it was not working fine. I couldnt access the site why so???

    Thanks and Regards

    First you need to check whether you can access the site with IP of the host server which is started. If it’s ok, it means that the Cluster IP is not correctly configured in the current server. I do the test according to what you said, it’s working fine(Can accesss the site only if any one server is started).

    Hi Rocky,

    Should I access the site from the Cluster IP or from the name where site has been hosted on farm?

    When both the servers are up then we can access the site from the Cluster IP, when I down server 1 then its also works fine but when I down server 2 and up server 1 then its not working.

    I am not getting where am I doing wrong?

    Can you acess the site with Server1′s IP directly? if can’t, it prove that it’s Server1′s wrong not Cluster configuration’s.

    Hi Rocky,
    Thanks a Lot for helping me. I changed Affinity Single to None at the time of setup NLB and now it is working fine.

    Thanks and Regards

    Hi Rocky,

    If we customize our site and HA will work in this scenario, because customized files save into the file system.

    What happened to the graphics on this page….they were here last week?
    It makes the page “hard to use” since the screenshots are integral to the instructions.

    The screenshots are working fine in my computer, can you check it again?

    Thank you for taking the time to write this article.
    I was able to follow your steps but wasn’t successful in accessing the new cluster URL. In my case, the web app I was using already had a host header in its bindings. Could that be a problem?
    I did add the Alternate Access Mapping with the same URL added in the Full Internet name.
    I am able to access the site using the original Url.
    Any thoughts? Ideas?

    Please try to modify the DNS record on DNS server, make sure the host header is mapped to the cluster IP not one specified WFE . Hope this can help you.

    After I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments
    are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added
    I get four emails with the same comment. Is there
    a way you are able to remove me from that service?

    I have Sharepoint 2010 server farm with 2 node NLB cluster configured to host the website. Basically we are migrating our domain from sourcedomain.local to targetdomain.local, do we have a step by step process for doing the migrations? Do we need to break the NLB cluster and then migrate one Sharepoint server at a time and when both nodes are in targetdomain.local domain re-create the NLB cluster?
