print-cluster - syncing drivers
Posted on 2006-04-10
I have a two server print cluster. The driver folders on each do not contain the same drivers and I want them to sync correctly.
Here's a comparison of the driver folders:
primary 550 megs:
secondary 489 megs:
cluster print_driver location 545 megs:
There is a significant difference in the files that are on the cluster and whatever server is active. e.g., the active print server is missing about 50 files that the cluster has AND, likewise, the cluster is missing a few dozen dll's and other driver files the active server has.
In a fail-over, isn't the active server supposed to copy the drivers from the cluster to its print$ share? Instead, I get a printer failure rate on 10% of the printers models (out of 120 models) because of differences.
