Create a COM+ Application Cluster

A COM+ application cluster primarily handles the processing of COM+ components. When Web or Windows-based applications activate COM+ components, these activation requests can be load balanced across the multiple members within a COM+ application cluster. To perform the load balancing, you must configure CLB on the Web or COM+ routing cluster.

To create a COM+ application cluster

  1. Configure Cluster Communication.

  2. Start the New Cluster Wizard.

  3. On the Cluster Type page, click COM+ application cluster, and then click Next.

  4. On the COM+ Application Clients page, select the clients that will be activating components on this COM+ application cluster, and then click Next.

  5. To receive notification of cluster events, on the Monitoring Options page, enter an e-mail address and e-mail server name, and then click Next.

  6. Click Finish.
