WSUS Hardware Load Balancing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all, 

    We are trying to install 2 WSUS Servers with Hardware Load Balancing with F5 Appliance. 

    We have 2 Servers, 1 Remote SQL and the F5 Appliance to Load Balance. We configure both WSUS Servers with WSUSContent in a DFS Root and the SQL in the Remote SQL Server. But we notice, only one WSUS Server is able to contact at the same time with the SUSDB Database. Sometimes is Server1 and sometimes Server2. 

    We are thinking in use NLB but we prefer Hardware Load Balancing because is very powerful and we trust it. 

    Can you help us?

    thank you.

  • Thank you Hamid for your reply. 

    Yes, I read this articles but i didnt find any solution to my issue. We have disabled DFS and locate the WSUSContent in a shared folder and it seems the SQL running in both WSUS servers. So, I guess we had problems in our DFS root. 

    Right now, we are trying to balance the WSUS url with F5 load balancer but we are suffering issues with NAT.
