Question about Load balancer

We have url posts coming from one of our partner website to update some customer data on our side. They posts the url to a jsp. Our concern is since the url post is coming from the same server, does our load balancer direct all those requests to the same server? If it does, how can we prevent ths from happening? Is creating a session and submitting each url posts in different sessions a solution for this?

Having the load balancer make a decision based on the originating IP would be rather unusual. Before spending time thinking about this scenario I'd investigate whether it's actually happening; I'd be surprised if it was.
I agree. Here's the link:
