My client has 2 WFEs. I have seen that the web applications and sites that I create in 1 server are mirrored in another server. But if I try to access sites under those web apps from another wfe using that wfe url, they don't load even though they are present. They typically show an unauthorized error or show the login popup 3 times before showing unauthorized. Why does this happen? Also, if a server goes down, can I use another wfe to open the same site? How do I set this up? I need to do it for an existing web application.

  • Couple of questions, What Authnetication you are using for the web app? are you using the DNS or server name and port numbers? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Aug 4 '15 at 18:15
  • Claims with Windows authentication and server name and port numbers. – Akhoy Aug 4 '15 at 18:20
  • So no Kerberos? also Did you configure the Object cahce(super user and super reader) – Waqas Sarwar MVP Aug 4 '15 at 18:29
  • Nope. No Kerberos. Not sure what those are. Pretty much a noob when it comes to infrastructure part. Could you pls explain it to me? – Akhoy Aug 4 '15 at 18:41
