I also could not find the ARR icon when using the server manager. But when I went to control panel, admin tools, iis manager, the ARR icon was there.

Yes. This is called a "Reverse Proxy". See the following question for another solution (apparently it can be troublesome, but see Scott's answer): Using IIS7 as a Reverse Proxy You can also use ISAPI ReWrite for doing this, it seems to be a bit of a defacto standard for IIS, and uses a .htaccess compatible file format.

Server Farms should be the UI branch from which it's configured. The top level of a given farm shows its ARR properties. If you haven't closed/reopened the Inetmgr GUI since installing it, you need to do that too.

You can do this - when adding a server to the farm, click the "Advanced settings..." link, in there both the HTTP and HTTPS ports are configurable to whatever you want. In the c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\config\ApplicationHost.config file, the server entry would look something like this: <server address="192.168.1.1" enabled="true"> ...

I am running ARR 2.5 on a Windows 2008 R2 Datacenter SP1, and have experienced the same problem when transitioning a farm server by selecting either "Disallow New Connections" or "Make Server Unavailable Immediately". The controller will eventually revert the farm server to available. I checked the access logs on the affected server and in one case, it ...

You don't want to setup IIS using clustering services. This is not what Windows Clustering is for. At it's core, Windows Clustering is for restarting a service if it crashes-- but with the ability to restart the service on another machine if the machine fails. You will not achieve any of your goals and you will confuse the heck out of everyone. You ...

The bindings on a website take higher priority than the URLRewrite's, so my Site was answering before URL_Rewrite could pass to ARR

If this is a single server and if you're running PHP on IIS where it's installed and configured as per the guidelines (PHP non-threadsafe build + FastCGI) then I can't really see a reason to be adding ARR into the mix unless.... you have Apache for Windows installed and are running your PHP applications in Apache but want to use ARR as a reverse proxy You ...

Is 'localhost' on the same server? i.e. is Tomcat on port 9443 while ARR is on port 80, on the same server? Here are the key things to setup: create a Server Farm. If it's on the same box, add a single node pointing to 'localhost'. if you say 'yes' to create the URL Rewrite rules, it will capture all traffic and forward to that server farm. If that's ...

Get a network packet capture of the failed requests and check the Http request header for the kerberos authentication token. If you are expecting a kerberos token and it isn't present, the issue probably isn't your servers. I'm assuming you are expecting kerberos because of the SPN checklist. Refer to the following for more information: ...

On the ARR server you will want to configure a single farm that contains both web servers. Keep the default rewrite rule that ARR creates automatically. On the web servers you will create a website in IIS for each application you are wanting to serve. Each site in IIS will need its bindings set to all IPs (*) with the hostname that matches the site you ...

First of all, I don't know the answer but am guessing it does at least use session id. Second I would go about finding out not by looking at documentation which may or may not be trustworthy on such a detail, but by sniffing the traffic and in such a way ensuring a 100% correct answer. I find this the easiest way when it comes to proxies which can ...

Answering my own question after using Wireshark to determine the answer. Yes, AAR will utilize SSL sessions and those sessions can service multiple clients. Using Wireshark I observed the following: Client1 -> AAR GET /foo AAR -> ContentServer Client Hello ContentServer -> AAR Server Hello, Certificate, Server Hello Done AAR ...

We had typo'd HTTP/srvarr and HTTP/srvweb as http://srvarr and http://srvweb. Make sure you do it as the protocol instead of the url! Also settings that might help others: Remove both NTLM and Negotiate and add Negotiate:Kerberos and turn on UseAppPoolCredentials and off useKernelMode Make sure all of the servers are using your domain web service account ...

I believe this link will be of help: http://forums.iis.net/t/1156563.aspx I've used it myself, and it works rather nicely. Matt

Yes, NLB and ARR work fine. See this MSFT article. In the smallest possible configuration, you will have 2 servers, each with NLB, ARR and the web server installed on BOTH boxes.

I've never seen sizing recommendations from Microsoft for ARR. That being said, if you're not using caching in the ARR layer then the specs are minimal. Without caching, the ARR service isn't doing much. A single low-end server will probably handle your user load. Make sure that whatever NIC is in the server is known to work well with Receive Side Scaling. ...

ARR has a health check feature to test if the backend servers are up and running and when configured correctly will only route request to servers it thinks are healthly.

One of the benefits of ARR as of Nov 2014, is the it provides client affinity to your HTTP requests. As of now, the Azure load balancer / traffic manager does not provide this.


1

In order to let the ARR server know when not to route requests to a server, you need to set up a Health Test. Select your server farm in the IIS Manager Select the Health Test Feature. Here you can fill in an URL to run the health check against, (ie. a text file containing a good word, or the index page on the web site your trying to load balance). ...

Geograpic load balancing (sometimes called "Global Server Load Balancing" or GSLB) as traditionally done has little to do with web servers, and everything to do with DNS. You need a DNS server that will give people the IP they want based on their geography. See pGeoDNS for a simple example written in Perl that will run on most systems, and uses a free ...

As I know, ARR Proxy (and any other proxy-cache) use this header (and more) to check if something is in cache. Open IIS root, and create a Server Farm with your needs. You can also open your website in IIS manager, URL Rewrite, and add a Reverse Proxy rule with your needs (for example - proxy for only one folder in a working website). Remember that you ...

Seems you do not need any rewrite rules. Check TeamCity server context path is the same as in your public server, i.e. http://public.com/contextPath and http://localhost:8080/contextPath. TeamCity uses request URI to generate NuGet feed, so you should make sure your proxy provides HOST, X-Forwarded-Host, X-Forwarded-Server, X-Forwarded-For headers. You may ...

Ah, the power of posting. After asking the question, I decided to take a look at the rules I had setup one more time. The rules were setup on the site level. I moved them to the server level, and everything works like a charm.

I just potentially resolve my problem. After several hours of testing, code and all without success. What the tests show, the primary cache of ARR will keep a "lock" on the controller file to its existence. However the secondary cache is much more permissive (luckily) it allows us to deleted files without them it is "locked" by IIS. So what would say that I ...

Did you start with the URL Rewrite wizard for reverse proxy? That will give you the option of enabling the proxy functionality. After you do that then your rule should look something like this: Notice that the domain name is in the condition rather than the url. The url is just for the part after the domain name. Here's ...

Network Load Balancing (NLB) will allow you to load balance, so will Application Request Routing (ARR). Both, however, are setup to route between two different servers, setting this up on 1 machine would not be possible. NLB operates lower in the stack, and can load balance more than just IIS, whereas ARR is built into IIS and relies on URLRewrite to ...

I got this problem on Server 2012 R2, I usually start IIS Manager form the command line It turned out when using: %windir%\System32\inetsrv\iis.msc the ARR icons are missing, but when using %windir%\system32\inetsrv\InetMgr.exe they show up just fine. On Server 2012 R2, both Administrative tools and Server Manager use InetMgr.exe, so both should ...

It depends on how you use it. If you leverage the disk caching, there are supposed to be nice performance improvements. I haven't tested personally to know how much though. Here's the release post for 2.5.
