Creating Port Rules on the Target Cluster

Updated: March 28, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Create the port rules on the target cluster by using Network Load Balancing Manager. Network Load Balancing Manager is recommended because it ensures that the port rules remain consistent across all the cluster hosts. Other methods require you to manually ensure that the port rules are consistent.

To create the port rules on the target cluster by using Network Load Balancing Manager:

  1. Start Network Load Balancing Manager.

  2. If Network Load Balancing Manager does not already list the cluster, connect to the cluster.

  3. Right-click the cluster, and then click Cluster Properties.

  4. Click the Port Rules tab.

  5. Click Add.

  6. Using the port rules documented in previous steps, specify values for the following:

    • Cluster IP address, which is the virtual IP address that you want this rule to apply to. Enter a specific virtual IP address to create a virtual cluster, or check All to apply the rule to all virtual IP addresses.

    • Port range

    • Protocols

    • Filtering mode and as appropriate, values for Affinity, and Load weight, and then click OK.

  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all port rules are created.

For more information about creating port rules in Network Load Balancing Manager, see "Create and Manage Network Load Balancing Clusters" in Help and Support Center for Windows Server 2003.
