Question about MOSS 2007 WFE

  Asked By: Carlos    Date: Aug 22    Category: MOSS    Views: 1312

I am getting ready to install MOSS 2007 Ent on a total of 4 server.

2 - NLB WFE Server

1 APP Server

1 SQL 2005 Server

My question is, when I go to create a new site collection, what are the
proper steps to create sites pointing that point to the NLB Cluster IP

Do I have to create all the sites first in IIS on all WFE Servers? Do I
have to check the load balanced URL check box?

to do an IISRESET on the WFE.

As long as the NLB is setup correctly prior to creating the site
(including a valid DNS entry corresponding to the NLB IP address), you
can just use the DNS name and create the web app/site collection in the
SharePoint UI as you normally would.

No. It gets created in IIS when you create the web app.
