If you have scaled out CM servers, you should configure the URL of your CM load balancer in the Content Manager Webroot URL (i.e. the "public" URL of your CM website).

It is also important that all CM servers have the same Environment ID. By default, the Environment ID is derived from your Database (server) name, which automatically means that the Environment ID is the same for all CM servers (since they share the same database).

    BTW: The CM Webroot URL you enter in the installer is stored in Topology Manager (it's a property of a CmEnvironment in Topology Manager). You can change it in Topology Manager after installation, if needed. Commented Oct 25, 2016 at 19:42
