Thanks Marie, but the referenced thread doesnt address my question.
However, it does raise another question that is also not answered yet. Namely, must one stop ALL services on ALL pollers prior to load balancing? And, what is the purpose of the "Stop/Start Services" button in the Monitor Polling Engines app?
Sorry the link didn't help so much. I'm having difficulty locating posts that might be helpful via thwack's search.
Re: Availability for Load Balancers is a recent feature req on load balancing that might help.
Here are some more links to load balancing threads.
I will also mark your post for PM to review.
