          This post has been moved from the Solaris 10 forum to the Clustering forum,
          for closer topic alignment.

          The title has also been edited to make it a bit more descriptive.

            Since NLB stands for network load balancer, I think the initial question has been placed correctly into the Solaris forum.

            Solaris 11 does ship a new functionality called "Integrated Load Balancer". For details see
            http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23824_01/html/821-1453/gijjm.html

            There is also an example at
            http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/servers-storage-admin/loadbalancedapp-1653020.html

            If the question is really related to clustering, then you might want to take a look at the description for scalable services using a shared address resource type:
