You want to evenly distribute connection objects between bridgehead servers in a site.
To see what changes the command would make, run it without the
/commit option. To actually make the changes in
Active Directory, use the
> adlb /server:<
SiteName> [/commit] [/verbose]
This command is available in the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit.
Bridgeheads can become overloaded or end up with too many connection
objects in relation to other bridgeheads in the domain. The Active
Directory Load Balancing (ADLB) tool allows you to balance the load
of connection objects among bridgehead servers within a site. The
Windows Server 2003 algorithms are much better than Windows 2000 for
load balancing connection objects across servers, but that process
happens only when new connection objects are added. You can use the
adlb tool to load balance the connection objects
more efficiently at any time.
I recommend viewing the changes
adlb would make
first before using the
/commit option. It is
always good to do a sanity check to ensure
doesn’t mess up your replication topology.
