N2 - A reliable server assignment (RSA) problem in networks is defined as determining a deployment of identical servers on a network to maximize a measure of service availability. In this paper, a simulation optimization approach is introduced based on a Monte Carlo simulation and embedded into a Clonal Selection Algorithm (CSA) to find diverse solutions for the RSA problem, which is important in simulation optimization. The experimental results show that the simulation embedded-CSA is an effective heuristic method to discover diverse solutions to the problem.
