We have a NLB cluster set up for our public web servers. I'm trying to stop the "localhost" in the cluster from the command line using NLB.EXE. When I write "nbl stop" it seems that all nodes are stopped but I only want the local node (the server I'm running the command prompt on) to be stopped in the cluster.

When I try specifying the node using the command "nlb stop 192.168.182.104:HOSTNAME" it fails, saying "Did not receive response from the cluster".

Am I not specifying the cluster and the host correctly?

The guide at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772833(WS.10).aspx explains that simply "nlb stop" will stop all NLB functions on the localhost.

Nodes must be part of the cluster already. "nlb start" and "nlb stop" will make the node become and active member of the cluster or an inactive member. "nlb start <shared_cluster_ip>:<nlb_adaptor_interface>" eg: nlb start 10.166.250.199:172.16.1.202 will start a particular node within that cluster.
