FogBugz on load balanced IIS servers

Hi,

We'd like to install FogBugz on our existing Intranet, to avoid adding another machine to our data center just for the bug tracking app. In our environment, the Intranet site is hosted on a load balanced web farm of two servers.

Is the FogBugz app able to handle running within a load balanced pool? Does it use session information stored on the web server itself?

Thanks,

The only two things that it uses in the server itself is the FileUploads directory (all files uploaded are stored on the web server, not in the database) and some settings related to new versions.  The first will cause a headache unless you just change the code to use a fileserver location instead of the default location.  The second won't be much of a problem.

That being said, we do have a 90 day money back guarantee, so your best bet is just to make the purchase, and install it.  If we can't get the quirks worked out, return it.
