If you use the drainstop, query, suspend, or stop parameter with Windows Load Balancing Service (WLBS) at a command prompt, system messages may not accurately report the computer's status under the following conditions:
- When you use the drainstop parameter, you receive a message indicating that connection draining has started. If you then use the wlbs query command, the host reports that draining has stopped. If you repeat the wlbs drainstop command, you receive a message indicating that connection draining has started. If you then run the wlbs stop command, you receive a message indicating that cluster operations have already stopped.
- When you use the suspend parameter, you receive a message indicating that cluster control is suspended. If you then use the wlbs stop command, the host reports that cluster control has been suspended (although it has already been stopped). If you then run the wlbs drainstop command, you receive a message indicating that cluster control has been suspended and connection draining has been started.
