Server 2019 Core and NLB role

Hi!
I'm try to deploy AOVPN on core server 2019. Standalone server everything works fine (almost everything, but that's another story about triggers). In our case I would like to make high availability vpn, so I installed NLB role. And now I have question. How I'm supposed to configure NLB, if rsat-nlb is not available on server core? I don't see any point to start using core servers if I'm unable to proper configure features. Looks like only option is install another server with GUI and create nlb cluster there. Or I miss something? I know about Kemp loadmaster and another 3rd party software, but I don't want to use this approach. Thanks!

Hi ,

RSAT-NLB has been removed from the Server Core installation option of Windows Server 2016 and 2019.

For more details, you can refer to the following article:

Roles, Role Services, and Features not in Windows Server - Server Core

As you said, it seems you have to install another server with GUI and create NLB cluster there.

Best Regards,

Candy
