Implementing Round Robin:
DNS server properties:
Assigning multiple IPs to the NIC. By going to TCP/IP properties – advanced –
Add – multiple IPs – ok (ex. 192.168.1.17, 192.168.1.18, 192.168.1.19)
Open DNS → create 3 more host records with the IPs created above.
Go to command prompt.For clearing DNS cache.
