Hi,

I am setting up a 2008 2 node cluster for print service. I created 2 iSCSI LUNs, one for wittness disk and one for print spooler/driver, on our  iSCSI SAN. I was able to change the location of the print spooler within the print management console, however I can't seem to change the driver location in these print servers. Also, regarding the printer drivers installation, there was document instructing installing printer driver on each node within a cluster, there was also document recommendating installing driver in the virtual print server, the print cluster itself. Which appoarch is correct? Any comment would be appreciated.

Thanks

Microsoft provides a step-by-step guide for configuring a print cluster. This pretty much covers it from beginning to end:

Additionally, here is the server 2003 guide just in case:

Thanks, I did look at the doc, but didn't pay attention at the very bottom which did say how to install driver from the failover cluster management console.
