R2 and DNAT RRS feed

  • Question

  • With OCS 2007 non R2 when you did the initial front end server install it gave you the option to install in DNAT or SNAT mode, now in reading the Planning Load Balancing for R2 a small note says that you cannot install anything but edge servers in DNAT mode. Can anyone who has done the install confirm this is no longer an option?

    Destination network address translation (DNAT) is not supported for load balancing of an Enterprise pool or Communicator Web Access, but both DNAT and source network address translation (SNAT) are supported for load balancing of Edge Servers and HTTP.

  • Correct, DNAT is no longer an option for load-balancing your Front-Ends. SNAT is the only supported scenario for R2. The screen where you made that selection has been removed.
