how was the second wfe  joined to the farm?
or was it at all?

Answer #2    Answered By: Dhanraj Saxsena     Answered On: Nov 17

We had a farm  configured with one wfe, one app  srv, and a SQL cluster.
We intalled SharePoint server  2007 using the complete setting and then
ran the configuration  wizzard to join it to the existing farm. In
central admin it shows the web application service as the only
running sevice on that server.

Did you run the wizard on both servers? It is not clear as to how you joined
both servers to the farm. Did you install central admin on the wfe  and then run
wizard on app  server and join that server  to the existing farm. Please clarify
your steps.

1. Configurged SQL cluster. 2. Installed SharePoint server  2007 on two
other servers. 3. Ran SharePoint Technology Wizzard on first server.
3. Opened Central admin on first server and configured topoly toso
first server iswas the web sand second server ran Excel services. All
was well. Installed SharePoint Server 2007 on third machine and ran
wizzard to add that machine to the existing farm. Went to Central
Admin on first server and started Web Application on third server.

Ok, so now I'm confused. You started the Web App service, and it shows as
running on the server. So what's the issue? You have no other services running
on the second WFE based upon your post. What else do you think should be there?

Nothing. if ig to http://wfe1/ I see content. If I go to http://wfe2 I
see nothing. I thought I we see content  on either wfe.

Answer #7    Answered By: Kacey Russo     Answered On: Nov 17

Did you add an Alternate Access Mapping (AAM) for http://wfe2? Normally when
you add a second server  to the environment it is so that you can access the WFEs
through a load balancer. Since you aren't using a load balancer you would need
to manually configure the additional AAM.

To add to what Paul was saying about AAMs, depending on how you are actually
trying to get to the site, URL-wise, make sure you have the proper Host Headers
defined in IIS as well, on both WFEs. Only the Host header defined by the Web
Application is propagated to the new WFE, any added ones need to be manually
added to the new server.
