For example, if you right-click a group in the Cluster Administrator MMC snap-in, point to New, and then click Resource, the IIS Server Instance resource type does not appear in the Resource type list.
In Windows Server 2003, the following two scripts are available to configure clustering for IIS:
- For WWW services, Clusweb.vbs.
- For FTP services, Clusftp.vbs.
- Start the Cluster Administrator tool, and then create a group, or use an existing group, to contain the following resources:
- A Physical Disk resource.
- An IP Address resource.
- A Network Name resource.
- Bring the IP Address resource and the Network Name resource online. To do this, right-click a resource, and then click Bring Online.
- Create a Web or FTP site that points to a folder on a shared hard disk by using the IIS Manager tool. Assign the same IP address that you configured for the IP Address resource to the Web or FTP site. For additional information about how to deploy IIS 6.0, see the Deploying Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 guide. To obtain this guide, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
- In the group where you created the resources in step 1, create a new Generic Script resource. Point this Generic Script resource to one of the following Visual Basic scripts, depending on the kind of site that you want to create:
- Start the Cluster Administrator MMC snap-in.
- Right-click the group that you used in step 1, point to New, and then click Resource.
- In the Name box, type a descriptive name for this resource, click Generic Script in the Resource type list, and then click Next.
- View the entries in the Possible owners list to make sure that the appropriate cluster nodes appear, and then click Next.
- In the Available resources list, click the IP Address resource, click Add->, and then click Next.
- In the Script filepath box, type the path of the script that you want to use. For example, to create a clustered Web site, type the following: %systemroot%\System32\Inetsrv\Clusweb.vbs
- Click Finish, and then click OK on the following message that appears:
- Bring the Generic Script resource online. To do this, right-click the resource, and then click Bring Online.
- Test the connectivity to the clustered Web site. To do this, visit the Web site by using a Web browser program, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer.
If you want to migrate your IIS 5.0 Web server to IIS 6.0, you can use the IIS Migration tool. To obtain this tool, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
- Clusweb.vbs for WWW services
- Clusftp.vbs for FTP services
