Event ID 29 — NLB General Functionality

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

General Functionality provides information about whether the hosts are functioning properly, such as when a new host has started load balancing traffic, when an inactive host has suspended cluster operations, and when NLB cluster is initiating convergence because a new host is joining the cluster.
