I have the sites in our development lab syncing with the Microsoft Web Farm Framework but I noticed every 30 seconds that the w3svc service was stopping and then starting on my secondary server. This is not good since all our web sites are .Net and the spool up time on the new application pools would have killed us. A quick check of my settings revealed I left the check box to “Take server offline while syncing applications” checked.
Save yourself the headache and turn this off or change your synchronization interval so your other servers don’t restart the w3svc every 30 seconds.
