Windows Server 2016.
You need to distribute workload across the cluster nodes for supporting a larger number of simultaneous
What will you do to accomplish the task?
A. Deploy Windows AIK.
B. Use Network Load Balancing.
C. Implement NIC teaming.
D. Create a failover cluster.
In order to accomplish the task, you should use Network Load Balancing. Network Load Balancing (NLB) is
a clustering technology offered by Microsoft.
In order to scale performance, it uses a distributed algorithm to load balance network traffic across multiple
hosts. It also ensures high availability by detecting host failures and automatically redistributes traffic to
A: The Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) is a set of tools and documentation provided
with Windows operating system.
It supports the configuration and deployment of Windows operating systems.
Administrators can use Windows AIK for automating Windows installations, capturing Windows images with
ImageX, configuring and modifying images, creating Windows PE images, and migrating user profiles and
data. Windows AIK includes various Windows tools such as Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT),
Users State Migration Tools (USMT), etc.
C: NIC teaming is used to group two or more physical NICs into a single logical NIC. It is used to make a
network fault tolerant.
D: Failover clusters are a group of two or more severs that share a common set of resources. This ensures
data integrity and high availability.
It has two types of nodes: the active node and the passive node. The active node provides service to
incoming connections. The passive node provides service when an active node moves offline.
