|Message:||NLB Cluster %2 %1: The bi-directional affinity (BDA) team in which this cluster participates has no designated master. The team is inactive and will remain inactive until a master for the team is designated and consistent BDA teaming configuration is detected. %3 %4|
A bidirectional affinity (BDA) team is a set of adapters on a single host that act in concert. One adapter on each cluster host must be the master for that team. This event is logged when the team that this adapter has just joined does not have an active master yet. This might be a transient condition due to the binding order of adapters in the system.
If this event is followed by an NLB 61 event in Event Viewer, no user action is required.
If this event is not followed by an NLB 61 event, then you need to change your BDA configuration to make it consistent across all hosts. BDA configuration is specified by the Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server (ISA Server) setup. For more information about configuring BDA, see the relevant ISA Server documentation.
