    We have 2 windows 2003 servers configured with SMTP service on IIS 6.0 in 2 different geographic locations.
    These 2 servers are virtual machines on 2 different ESXi 5 clusters.
    Messaging engineer want these 2 servers to be in a NLB cluster.
    I am aware that NLB requires hosts in same subnet.
    So a possibility of stretched VLAN accross datacenters is being explored with the network team.
    I have found the following article but it relates to VI 3: – “Implementing Microsoft Network Load Balancing in a Virtualized Environment”
    Are there any other requirements for the NLB to work properly & is this setup possible?
