I am having problems when trying to create a cluster by choosing the network bridge i created for my server. The cluster will return a host not found while configuring at the last step of a clustering on windows server 2008
Below is my setup
I have 2 Servers running windows server 2008 and each of the servers has 2 NIC that connects to 2 separate networks. Both of these network uses the same ip range and subnet. I created a bridge between the 2 NIC so from the server i will be able to view any of the PCs on any of the 2 network.
Because of the bridge so i have only 1 IP address for my server. Now i am trying to do network load balancing for both my servers so that both my servers which hosts a web server can share load and acts as a kind of redundancy.
I tried creating the Network load balancing via the Network load balancing manager. I connected to 1 of the host and it shows 3 network interface and only the bridge has an IP so i chose that and continued following the steps. I chose unicast (i also tried using multicast). when i reach the last step of the NLB configuration, i will get a message in the detail box - unable to reach host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (my bridged IP)
I am not sure if i am doing anything correct or wrong.
