Today, I tried to access a document library via windows explorer. This doc lib is living inside a system that consists of two WFE’s load balanced by some kind of Cisco NLB solution. (If/when the network wizards tell me what it is, I’ll update this post).
Windows explorer couldn’t connect. I did some research and eventually, the network wizards said that WebDAV is disabled by / not supported by / beneath the dignity of the NLB.
So, assuming the network wizards aren’t just telling me the network wizard equivalent of "take a long walk off a short bridge", I have to wonder — does NLB, by nature, disable WebDAV? Do we lose our windows file explorer interface to SharePoint? Is Cisco the Soup Nazi?
