  • In the import windows, try clicking "Error" and let us know what is says.

  • When in the import screen, click the "properties" button and navigate to the "dependencies" tab. All required dependencies will be listed there.

    Try to download and import NLB Management Pack to import all dependence management pack that wanted

  • Seems like you are missing the Library mp.

    1. Do you already have any NLB mps? If so, check directly from the console if there are any updates to current mps.

    2. Try to install the Library alone first, directly from the catalog in the console

  • 1.) I dont have NLB MP already installed.

    2.) I am not able to see any thing from the catalog search in the console. See the below for your reference.

  • Hi Zahid,

    The article that i send to you is related to missing dependencies Management Pack.

    Try to download and import NLB Management Pack then you will find NLB Management pack imported and on physical node, enable proxy agent to monitor cluster node.

  • I download the (Microsoft Server NLB MP SCCM2007 from the link which you shared above) and installed/imported. But then I tried to installed the SC NLB MP (which I was trying to import and was  showing ERROR) but keep showing ERROR.

    (Still I am not able to import NLB MP)Then I stopped the Application Pool from the IIS node which is currently accepting the client request. But after stopping the Application Pool, the NLB node still accepting the client request.

    Additionally see the below snap. Why the Microsoft NLB MP is showing converted under brackets

  • Any update will be highly appreciated. I got stuck at this point. I am not able to understand why the NLB MP is not able to import. Additionally why the Catalog is not showing the NLB even not any other MP. Just showing the updates. And the updates for NLB is also not showing.

    Any comment will be appreciated. Thanks. Zahid Haseeb.

  • Hi,

    Please re-click search to check for management packs in catalog.

    In addition, any errors or warnings in the event logs?

    Below is the extract from the above mentioned link

    Changes in This Release

    Version 6.0.6505.0 of the NLB Management Pack includes the following change:

    The View folder name is changed from Microsoft Network Load Balancing to Microsoft Network Load Balancing (Converted).

    -----------------x-------------------x--------------x--------------x------------x

    (I am near to resolve the query). When I stopped the Application Pool , The client request keep going to the IIS node where I stopped the Application Pool.

    -----------------x-------------------x--------------x--------------x------------x

    If the above information is correct, the Link which MaiAli(partner)  share above seems correct which is (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17572). And the other link share by the msdnBLOG (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/clustering/archive/2008/06/24/8648702.aspx) is this (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=13302) which seems incorrect. BECAUSE BOTH MSDNBLOG AND MAIALI LINKS SHOWS DIFFERENT MP NAME FOR NLB

  • As per my above post:

    (I am near to resolve the query). When I stopped the Application Pool , The client request keep going to the IIS node where I stopped the Application Pool.

    ..

    I noticed that when I change the Affinity from Single to None, My request are redirecting from infected IIS node (Where Application Pool Stopped) to healthy IIS node (Where Application Pool Started).

    BUT

    When I change the Affinity from None to Single, My request are not redirecting from infected IIS node (Where Application Pool Stopped) to healthy IIS node (Where Application Pool Started).

    ..

    Please advice. How can I use the Affinity with Single

  • As per the link (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc759039%28v=ws.10%29.aspx) , If we use Affinity to NONE , the Client traffic is stateless.

    My WEB SITE hosted on IIS and want to maintain stateful session so I chose Affinity to Single. The session is maintaining perfect but what happen when the clients are connected to the NLB IIS host and eventually the Application Pool stopped, but the clients keep connected to the same NLB IIS host, My question is why the clients are not failing over to other NLB IIS host ?

    Only in one case the clients request are failing over (when the Affinity is Single) . When I stopped the host from NLB Console. But this is only one case when the clients request are failing over with Affinity = Single.

    I want to achieve the Failover when the Application Pool gets stopped while the Affinity = Single

  • I wonder someone from MVP or etc is able to reply me on my query. Additionally I am still engage to solve my matter. Currently I want to share one thing on forum. My NLB Cluster environment consist of two nodes. Both are set with AFFINITY=SINGLE. As per my understanding this setting(AFFINITY=SINGLE) is for the Stateful application. In my case my application is Stateful but saving its connection string in its Database instead of NLB Node Memory. So I feel that if I set AFFINITY=NONE then it should be fine as the connection string is saving in its Database.

    Any comment will be appreciated. Thanks. Zahid Haseeb.
