Hi there, At the risk of sounding like a total newbie I have what I think is a simple setup problem: Config: 2 x web servers (W2K Adv Svr) in NLB configuration 1 x SQL Server 2000 (W2K) IP address 192.168.0.130 is the cluster address Each web server has their own physical IP address (192.168.0.131, 132) Problem: When testing db connectivity on each of the servers I found only one can establish a connection to SQL Server at any one time. I have confirmed each server can establish a connection independently. Running NETSTAT on the SQL box shows a connection on port 1433 for IP 192.168.0.130. Everything else works perfectly. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!
