Prestwood IT Load Balancer:
LB: Installation
Posted 13 years ago on 3/27/2007 and updated 5/28/2008
Take Away: Load Balancer installation.


The Load Balancer runs on an NT or Windows 2000 server.

The Load Balancer installation program will prompt you for a directory to install the program and data files.  It is best to run the installation program on your web server in order to have the application properly installed.

If you are unable to run the installation on your web server, and you need to copy the installed files to your web server (i.e. via FTP), you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Create a subdirectory and copy LoadBalMgr.exe, LoadBalSvc.exe, LBServiceLog.adt and PLoadBal.hlp.
  2. Create the files startup.cfg and routing.cfg with a text editor and place them in the same subdirectory.
  3. You will need to copy ace32.dll, adsloc32.dll, and adslocal.cfg from the Windows System32 directory of the workstation you installed Load Balancer on to the Windows System32 folder of your web server.
  4. Register the Load Balancer NT Service from a command prompt.  Change to the directory you installed, and install the NT service by typing:

    LoadBalSvc /install
  5. Start the Load Balancer Manager using Windows Explorer.
  6. Initialize the configuration of the the Load Balancer by specifying the Load Balancer's URL (the IP address of the server) and port number from a browser. The syntax is



    for port 86 (Default is port 80)
  7. Configure the Startup and Routing tables for the NT Service
    Start up the Load Balancer NT Service by clicking the "Start Service" button on the Manager's toolbar.
