Step 1: Enable network load balancing

[Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0]

Enable NLB on the network and create a server cluster for servers CRM01 and CRM02. We recommend that you use the following port-rule settings when you enable the load-balanced cluster.

  • Port range. Leave the default range, which is from 0 to 65535.
  • Protocols. Both
  • Affinity. Single

For information about procedures for loading and administering NLB on Windows Server 2003, see the Network Load Balancing Manager Help on the Windows Server 2003 computer.
