Load balance the SSPR Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     How can I load balance my FIM SSPR servers? I'd like to run the SSPR service on separate servers to the FIM sync, FIM service and FIM portal servers.

    I've ran through the SSPR installer on a single server, but never in a load balanced setup. How do I achieve this?

    Thanks

  • It is pretty simple.

    You install SSPR on two servers separately - make sure in IIS settings (bindings) that both are accessible on the same name, for example sspr.domain.com. Then you just create NLB that has two nodes - those two servers. Please remember to use session stickness just to make sure one session is served by one node only.
