Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 78
Source: Microsoft-Windows-NLB
Version: 6.1
Message: NLB cluster [%2]: This host is configured to persist 'Stopped' after the system restarts. Because the last known state of this host was stopped, the host will remain stopped regardless of the user-specified preferred initial host state. To start the host, use NLB Manager or use the PowerShell cmdlet 'Start-NlbClusterNode'.


This is a normal condition. No further action is required.
