Resolutions

Remove deprecated host

If an unsupported legacy host is discovered on the Network Load Balancing (NLB) cluster, you should remove the legacy host from the cluster. The cluster will remain in a converging state until all deprecated legacy hosts are removed.

To remove the host from an NLB cluster:

  • Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Network Load Balancing Manager. You can also open NLB Manager by typing Nlbmgr at a command prompt.

  • If NLB Manager does not list the cluster, connect to the cluster.

  • To remove a single host, right-click the host on which you want to disable NLB, and click Delete Host.
