Install NLB Cluster Feature of Microsoft Windows

We now need to install Network Load Balancing built-in Microsoft Windows feature on both proxy111 and proxy112 nodes, create an NLB cluster and add the nodes to the cluster. Note you can add as many nodes as required to further scale the application out.

We are assuming installation of NLB cluster feature is done already (look on the internet for simple next-next-done tutorials). After installation, Network Load Balancing Manager app should show the following cluster info.

Note how we configure TCP ports 8080 and 8443 for clustering leaving other ports intact.
