Print Server Failover
Posted on 2006-07-18
Not sure if this is the right area to post this. I could not find a suitable topic area.
I have 1 print server with all the printers installed on the server. All the clients connect to this server to send their print jobs.
Now is there a way to have a second print server with the printers installed on the server so that should the other print server go down then i can make the second print server go live and when users print they print without an error happening through the second print server.
I am looking for a solution that will minimise downtime for the users and is simple enough for us to change should the first print server go down.
I have found alot of information and programs on the internet about printer failover if a printer goes down but nothing about print server failover.
