  • Hi,

    I have my Direct Access Server deployed at Edge and i want a NLB and thus deployed another Direct Access Server. I had used three public IP one for DA1, Second one for NLB and the third one for DA2. But throwing an error of IP -HTTPS.  Also getting the Error for IP-HTTPS Certificate. Can you guide me the Steps to do this and also so that i can use the IP-HTTPS Certificate as my DA Server is on Edge and configure NLB on my Environment.

  • Hi

    Configuring a DirectAccess cluster in NLB is possible and documented here :https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj134175.aspx. There is a trick, that is documented here.

    In your configuration you plan to support Teredo. This mean that each DirectAccess Gateway must have two IPv4 public addresses, same for NLB. So you need six IPv6 public addresses (in the same subnet). Not sure NLB was designed for your scenario.

    You can also configure DirectAccess infrastructure to operate behing an edge device. In this configuration it's cheaper because, it's the HLB device that need a signe IPv4 public address. Your DirectAccess Gateway no longer need Ipv4 public addresses.
