  • Hello. The concept here is fairly straightforward whether you use NLB or HLB. Lots of articles online for conceptual review, but here's a good one: https://blog.orneling.se/2017/10/load-balancing-the-scom-web-console-part-1/

    Using F5, you'll need to go through your normal load balancing process, define your internal URI for VIP etc., configure the following:

    • internal VIP
    • VIP name
    • pool Name: This is name of pool of web servers
    • Target Servers IPs and Names
    • Load balancing Algorithm: I believe the options on F5 are round robin, ratio, fastest, least sessions, priority. Take your pick.
    • Persistence Method: Configure sticky sessions. This is usually recommended for the App Diagnostics and Advisor consoles, but I've had no issues configuring for the Web consoles as well.

  • Thank for your response. We did not configure our Management Servers in NLB, and what we have is two separate servers installed with IIS for web console access. I'm trying to load balance between these 2 with F5. During DR we will make the on-standby management server online, so how can the web servers be reconfigured to point to DR management server ?.. is it by just making changes to web.config files to the management server host name ?

    Cheers,

  • All my servers are in an AD domain, and for the LB we use a DNS domain name. So if I create a virtual name in the DNS domain and try to load balance, will that work ? or do I need to create the virtual name in the AD domain itself ?

    Cheers,
