NiceLabel Automation supports Microsoft load-balancing cluster. Load-balancing cluster is a group of independent computers that work together to increase the availability and scalability of label printing through NiceLabel Automation. The clustered servers (called nodes) are connected by physical cables and by software. The incoming requests for label printing are distributed among all nodes in a cluster. The clients providing data connect to the IP address belonging to the cluster, and not to individual node IP addresses.


You can use TCP/IP-based triggers with load-balancing cluster. These triggers are TCP/IP Server Trigger, HTTP Server Trigger, Web Service Trigger, and Cloud Trigger.

To enable NiceLabel Automation for load-balancing, do the following:

  • Set up Microsoft Load-balancing Clustering feature in your Windows Servers.

  • Install NiceLabel Automation on each node.

  • Load the same configuration files in Automation Manager on each node.
