Print Migrator 3 and MSCS


A

Art Napolitano

I had an NT 4.0 cluster. I evicted one node and rebuilt
it from scratch with a fresh W2K advanced server build.
Prior to the eviction I ran the print migrator and saved
the CAB file on another share.
I brought the new server up (same name as the old one)
restored the CAB file, and re-entered the cluster.
Everything was going great. I failed over one of my
print nodes and it moved to the new W2K server without
any problems. Finally I looked for my printers, they
were gone. Failed the node back and the printers re-
appear. I haved checked and all of the expected ports
are present on the new system, converted to Standard
TCPIP ports from LPR. I cannot seem to get the new
server to display the printer shares. Any ideas would be
appreciated.
Thanks
Art Napolitano

did the drivers get installed? Server 2003 has a policy set to block the
installation of kernel mode drivers (NT 4).

dont think its quite that easy, I successfully did this
about a year ago but had to change and import reg settings
to make it work, plus you need to maintain all your print
que settings, paper tray, mem, default source etc .Nt4 and
w2k store this in different reg keys..

Also clustering only supports LPR or Standard ip printer
ports.
