UAG Remote Access Publishing / Direct Access on the same server - IPv4 addressing/NLB implications RRS feed

Answers

  • The use of trunks on the internal interface with NLB VIPs is not supported to my knowledge. However, NLB needs to be enabled on the internal interface to meet the bi-directional affinity needs of DirectAccess.

    You can use trunks on the external interface with NLB VIPs for a supported configuration, it is just the internal interface that is not supported.

    You will need dedicated IP addresses on both interfaces on all array members. One IPv4 address per interface per server.

    You will need a single NLB VIP on the internal interface. Single IPv4 VIP per array.

    You will need at least two NLB VIPs on the external interface. At least two IPv4 VIPs.

    Does this help?

    Cheers
