Windows 2016: DNS Application based Load Balancing driven by a Powershell health check RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my internal network I have a 3rd party device that has no H/A capabilities other than having a warm standby in our DR data center that currently requires a DNS change.

    Would this approach work?

    1. Create Application Load Balancing Zone Scopes for Production and DR datacenters.
    • Production - weight = 100%
    • DR - weight = 0%

    2. Implement a timed powershell script that performs a https based health check against PROD device.  If PROD device does not respond, the script will change \ flip the Zone Scope weights.

    Please implement a HEALTH PROBE mechanism :-)

    Thanks, Stu
