We are planning to convert our website which is running on single server to a web farm with two servers on Windows 2008 R2. I am afraid I haven't found lot of documentation on this topic. Can any one point me to the proper documentation for this. The one document I found is
This one explains using single UNC share as file server but we are looking into to use every server in the web farm as file server (i.e have dotnetnuke folder on all the server's local drive) since UNC share becomes single point of failure (I don't have big understanding on this topic, please correct me if my assumption is wrong about single point of failure). So my questions are:
1. Can I do DNN web farm with multiple file servers, if so, how?
2. And also, how does the modules updates should be done? Does it need to be done on all the servers separately or does the DNN has any inbuilt mechanism for this or do we need to use DFS replication between the servers?
3. Also, we use heavy caching. Since we have to use file caching in the DNN CE web farms, how does the caching works with multiple file servers?
Also, please let me know any points or gotcha that I need be aware of. Any help is greatly appreciated.
