Configuring load balancing using Microsoft IIS 6.0

You can configure Microsoft IIS 6.0 and the ISAPI plug-in module to perform weighted round-robin load balancing with multiple BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy instances. Requests from the BlackBerry Client for Microsoft SharePoint are distributed between the file transfer and client download services of multiple instances.

To configure load balancing using Microsoft IIS, you perform the following tasks:

  • Install and configure multiple instances of the BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy.
  • Configure the server.xml files for each BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy instance.
  • Configure Microsoft IIS and the ISAPI plug-in module to support the BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy instances.
  • Configure IT policies for the BlackBerry Client for Microsoft SharePoint.

The BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy does not support load balancing using other Microsoft IIS versions.

This diagram shows the components that are described in the text above.
