I've got a solution running on a single server right now that uses transactional private queues (msmq/wcf). Windows services consume and process messages on the queues, and the web application layer pushes messages to the queues.
We're moving to an ip load-balanced configuration (round-robin, two servers, single virtual address) and there's no need to maintain message ordering between each node. So, simply replicating the stack (web app, services, queues) will be fine under normal conditions. But I'd prefer a single virtual set of queues so that no messages would be lost or delayed for extended periods if any node goes down.
I'm not new to MSMQ, but haven't configured it for multiple servers like this before. Any suggestions that don't involve reconfiguring servers? I need to stick with the load-balanced configuration.
