Adding a second web front end to a medium farm that is using load

  Asked By: Faith    Date: Mar 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1985

The two web servers already have load balancing configured.
But sharepoint hasn't been installed on wfe2 as of yet.
I want to go ahead and install sharepoint on wfe2 and run the config
wizard to join the farm.
Do I need to do anything else once that is done?

yes. Some caveats though:

1) Make sure both front  ends are installed  with the same product
(e.g. MOSS or WSS), SKU (Enterprise or Standard), and version (e.g.
releases plus any patches or updates)

2) If you have any custom code installed that's not installed using
a deployment package and requires manual installs steps, you'll need to
do those

3) Make sure the load  balanced name is in DNS and there's an AAM
defined for the URL.
