Currently I has 1 DB server & 1 Web server.
I would like to split the web server users 2 servers.

Has anyone done this on windows server 2003 before?

If so any how to links or info?

Thanks,

No problem. Just create one more web and set hostname on each web. The server will devide them by their hostname. Another option is to use different ports, but that's not so userfriendly.

what will the IP address be? Each servers have differnt IPs. No how-to links available?
I tried google but couldnt find much.

Different ip-address for each web is easy. It's on the general-tab on each web properties (see screenshot). You may also have several websites on the same ip if you just specify the "host header name" under the advanced-button on the right side of the ip-address field. IIS is very flexible in that way.

thanks for the fast response. I will go ahead an get the second server then. Anything is should remember that will be differn't? I'm currently using web gardens 2 work processes in one app pool. I can simply replicate the same setup the second server correct?

Lastly what decides on which server a user will be on? Or do the two servers simply act as one?

Ex. www.teachguy.com has 4 web servers and an icon on the bottom of the pages indicating which web server a users is currently on.

Thanks again
