  • Download the resource kit from the site

  • Run the downloaded file and go to the directory obtained e.g.: C:\Windows Resource Kits-Tools

  • Run in dependency of the windows release: Windows 2003 or lower: instsrv.exe "LBL(r)Monitor" "C:\Windows Resource Kits-Tools-srvany.exe"

Windows 2008 or higher (cmd LBL_HOME/legacyBin/Windows/LBLLoadBalancerSrv.bat): sc create "LBL(r)Monitor" binPath " "C:\Windows Resource Kits-Tools-srvany.exe"

  • Check with "Administrative Tools" and "Services" the correct insertion into the service table

  • With regedit position yourself on (reg LBL_HOME/legacyBin/Windows/LBLLoadBalancerSrv.reg):

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-SYSTEM-CurrentControlSet-Services-LBL(r)Monitor ... and verify that it's created

  • Take the sample configuration file: (LBL_HOME)/legacyBin/Windows/LBLLoadBalancerSrv.reg

  • Edit (LBL_HOME)/legacyBin/Windows/LBLLoadBalancerSrv.reg
