I am trying to design a Active/Passive clustering scheme for a legacy application
The application consists of two parts.
One - Pervasive 8x which supports active passive\clustering
Two - 16 bit DOS executables addressed by a mapped drive letter.
The problem i am running into with this scheme is pretty basic. If a user wants to run the system they run a batch file that runs executables that are mapped to the server they are using. I need to find a way to always have the mapped drive stay attached if failover is encountered.
For that to happen the two clustered servers would need to be the same name or something. The only decent thought I had was to use a created DNS name to access the public ips, but that would only work if they had the same public ip.
