Microsoft Releases Network Load Balancing Hotfix

Microsoft has released a Network Load Balancing hotfix for Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 SP1 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server, and Microsoft Application Center 2000.

The hotfix package remedies two problems. First, the Network Load Balancing Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider leaks a significant amount of memory in the WinMgmt process, resulting in a loss of 50 MB of memory in approximately 17 hours. Second, modifying a host’s Load weight setting in the configuration for Network Load Balancing ends all existing client connections to that host through the virtual IP address.

A supported fix is now available from Microsoft. It provides a set of Network Load Balancing .DLL files that contain hotfixes published before February 1. However, Microsoft recommends that unless systems are severely affected by the problems, administrators should wait for the next Windows 2000 service pack.

The hotfix is available at Microsoft’s Web site. – Isaac Slepner
