  • If you're using load balancing, then you shouldn't be connecting to the individual server url; you should instead always connect to the load balanced url. Are you sure the load balancing is configured correctly ?

  • Generally all the users are connecting to load balancing url:

    Some time application is going down i.e it is giving error when  trying to browse Load balanced url.

    but at that time we are browsing individul server urls  to check which is giving problem,  at that time we found that one sever is giving same rror. and other  server url is browsing successfully.


    so that we are doubting that if one server url is browsing why the loadbalance  url is giving error. is failover is supporting or not?

  • Load balancing works at the networking level, so if one server is not available on the network, then requests will be handled by another (working) server. However, if there is an application error on one server, then load balancing will be unaware of this, and will continue to direct requests to this server.

    Can you give details of the error you're getting ?

  • the error on the other server is  due to application pool reached maximum.

    And we are doing iisreset on the server which is giving problem and then problem will be solved totally.
