GGXP & Network Load Balancing in Windows 2000 adv. serve 13 Years, 11 Months ago  
Hi,

I've setup a Windows 2000 advanced server Network Load Balancing between 2 servers. And I want to install Go-Global XP for Windows onto these servers.

1) What is the installation procedure for Go-Global XP ?
2) Do I need TWO separate license files ?
3) If yes, does it mean the each license file only have 50% of the total licenses ?
3) How can I ensure the user connections are evenly distributed so that it would not hit the license upper limit on only one machine faster than the other machine?

Many Thanks !!!!

John,

GO-Global will need to be installed on each server. You may then use a central license (server) configuration or utilize license files to "balance" the license. Either configuration is accepted. We utilize the FLEXlm licensing engine from Macrovision and additional information on setting up redundant licensing can be obtained from their website at http://www.macrovision.com/services/supp...r/chap4.htm#wp894300. The full manual is online at http://www.macrovision.com/services/support/enduser/TOC.htm.

Finally, please review the 2 license server configuration on our Forum at http://www.graphon.com/support/forum/viewtopic.php?t=33.

Network Load balancing on Windows 2000 adv. server 13 Years, 11 Months ago  
Hi,

I've tried to test it on two Windows 2000 adv. server (using DEMO license) but whatever I set the license file on the slave server, it returned the same error message:

GO-Global 2.1.3.2179 20056-3418
Logon failed because of a licensing problem

The DEMO license on the first server is:

SERVER cluster.myhome.com ANY
DAEMON blm
INCREMENT session blm 2.0 21-jan-2004 uncounted XXXXXXXXXXXX \
HOSTID=ANY user_info="JohnJohn someone@hotmail.com" \
ISSUER="GraphOn Corporation" ISSUED=22-dec-2003 \

ISSUER="GraphOn Corporation" ISSUED=22-dec-2003 \
NOTICE="Copyright (C) 1996-2003 GraphOn Corporation. All \

The DEMO license on the second server is:

SERVER cluster.myhome.com ANY
DAEMON blm
INCREMENT any_app blm 2.0 21-jan-2004 uncounted XXXXXXXXXXXX \
HOSTID=ANY user_info="JohnJohn someone@hotmail.com" \
ISSUER="GraphOn Corporation" ISSUED=22-dec-2003 \
NOTICE="Copyright (C) 1996-2003 GraphOn Corporation. All \

USE_SERVER


Any hints ?


Many thanks
John

John,

Unfortunately, you cannot test redundant licensing using a DEMO license. To use this configuration, you will need permanent "counted" license files.

Hi,


Another problem of testing the NLB of the GO-Global XP on Windows 2000 adv. server was - it returned an error "The Application Publishing Service is not running on "Z.Z.Z.Z". Contact your system administrator.".

The IP "Z.Z.Z.Z" is a virtual IP address. Its workload is actually shared by two Win2000 adv servers (server 1 & server 2). When Both servers are turned on, I hit the above problem (PS: the logon.html can be viewed without any problem). If only one machine is turned on, no problem is encountered. In the NLB setting, all the ports (80, 491) are allowed and all the protocols (UDP, TCP) are allowed. Why I still hit this problem ?
Are you sure the Go-Global XP and Win2000 NLB are compatible ?


Many thanks,

John

John,

The "Application Publishing Service is not running..." error is not specifically related to any load-balancing functionality. This message essentially tells the client that it cannot reach the server, the server process is not started or perhaps a firewall is blocking the TCP port (491).

GO-Global has been verified to work with Windows NLB and I can forward you a document on the setup & configuration. Also, keep in mind that load balancing servers, traffic and licensing require distinctly different tools. You will not be able to balance any GO-Global licenses using NLB. That is a seperate configuration provided by the licensing server(s).
