If you are using a network load balanced (NLB) cluster in Configuration Manager 2007 for a software update point that supports Internet-based clients, the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the NLB cluster must be registered on Internet Domain Name System (DNS) servers. Then configure the NLB software update point in Configuration Manager 2007 with that Internet FQDN.

For more information about how to configure the software update point for an NLB cluster, see How to Configure the Active Software Update Point Component to Use an NLB Cluster.
