VMs SharePoint Farm RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have two SharePoint servers (SP1 & SP2) in our environment and they are configured as SP farms.

    Noticed that the spCALoadBalancer (Azure load balancer) - used for central admin access only has one backend server (SP1).

    Within the SP servers, the Alternate Access Mapping - default public URL for zone is set to SP1.

    I thought that the purpose of load balancer is to "load balance" between the two SP server. Not sure why it only has one SP1 being added in the backend pool ...?

    Do we need to add the other SP (SP2) in the backed pool too to achieve LB?

    Not sure why it is design like this hence would like to seek guidance.

    Thank you
