Iis – Web Farm Framework – Missing IIS features

iisload balancingweb-farm

I'm trying to install a web farm using Microsoft's Web Farm Framework 2.2. The server is Windows 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5.

I followed a tutorial. Installed WFF from Web Platform Installer. However, I'm missing some key features in the "Server Farm" panel in IIS.

This is how my setup looks like (image)

I want it like this

How can I enable ALL the things, like Load Balancer, Health Test, Server Affinity etc? Thanks. The tutorial I used was this: weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2010/09/08/introducing-the-microsoft-web-farm-framework.aspx

That's Application Request Routing. Install it as well.

As a note, you might need to nuke your farm configuration if there are problems layering it atop the existing installation (which I assume is on a controller).

App Request Routing is the proxying module that integrates with Web Farm Framework, which is the Server Farming and app and platform provisioning module (as of WFF 2.0; WFF 1.0 was literally just "these servers exist in a farm, are online/offline, and here are their IPs").

ARR installs WFF 1.0 if you just install it; WFF doesn't install ARR if you install it, but ARR integrates nicely on a WFF Controller.
