i have a windows 2003 server acting as a print server. It is running standard sp2
i have around 80 printers on this and would really need some sort of redundancy.
I have a another server which i have backed up all these printers to using microsoft print migrator.
How can i setup redundancy that when one print server fails the other one takes over.
Can i use some sort of dns entry.
I mostly use scripts to assign printers to users.
I have read a little into print clustering but it needs microsoft windows 2003 enterprise.
is this the only real soloution to printer redundancy or is their anything else i could use
