NetworkLoadBalancingClusters

Looking at the module list available when you install the Windows 2008 R2 RSAT pack on Windows 7  I noticed one called NetworkLoadBalancingClusters.  Well really its called NetworkLoadBalancingCl... in most displays. 
 
NetworkLoadBalancingClusters must the longest of module names!
 
Still when we import it we get a long list of cmdlets - (Get-Command -Module NetworkLoadBalancingClusters).count gives an answer of 35

Looking at this list seems we can do just about everything we need around NLB with this module.
 
I'm busy writing the IIS chapter of my book at the moment and this complements the IIS provider very well.   So I can add a new node to my NLB cluster, create the web site and copy the application onto it  - all from one script.
