Migrate printer from MS Cluster

Hi All,

I  have a Win2K3 two node cluster in which I want to migrate the printers onto two new servers that are not clustered.  My question is, if I use the printmig 3.1 utility it states to the put the cluster name in the target server when doing a backup.  Well, I dont want all the printers in the cluster.  I only want node1's printers and then node2's printers as they are going to separate servers after the backup.  So what do I specify in the target server for backup?  It seems like if i specify the "real" node name I will get only the local printers on that server, so do I put in the network name for that node?  Unfortunately I cannot test this as it stops the spooler service and I have a very large scale printing environment.

thanks,

R

When dealing with a clustered print server rsource, you'll always need to use the virtual network name assigned to the respective spooler resource.
