Web Application on Farm

  Asked By: Naman    Date: Mar 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 987

I have farm where 1 server is dedicated for DB Engine, SAN Space for DB Storage,
1 Index server and 2 Web Front End Servers.My requirement is to have presence of
different business units applications which can consist of different sites
and document storage space on this infrastructure. What i thought is to create
the Web Applications for each business unit and create the sites of them in it
Suggestions welcome if i am wrong in any area and this will help me to start
with confidence.
Oh the issue i came across is where i have to create the web application whether
it should be on WFE server or Index server.
I have just created the Web Application on 1 WFE server but it is not getting
accessed. I dont know the reason. I have checked the DB and found the new DB for
this and the name is displaying in the Web Application list also.
Please advise where to create the Web Applications and how to access it from
different WFE machine and also from the same machine.

traffic is properly routed to the WFEs for connection. Is your DNS properly
