subscriptions in clustered enviornment

We are running sql 2005 in a 2 node active /passive cluster.Reporting services being installed on 2 nodes separately.
The problem that we are facing is when we add new subscriptions they tend to point to the node whichever is active.
So when a failover occurs and we add more subscriptions to it the new subscriptions added now points to the failed  over node.Which finally ends up some subscriptions in node 1 and some pointing to node 2.
Is there any way we can merge the subscriptions to point to one node?

The only thing I can think is that you are going to have separate the reporting services from the SQL cluster and then recreate the other subscriptions.

Note that I have very little experience with RS. TPTB haven't let me play with them. :-(

Everything I'm reading is saying that the Reporting Services are not normally clusterable. But the first link below is talking about how to do it with SQL 2000. I'm sure you can pull it of with 2005.

It looks to be a matter of shifting your IIS and Reporting services install to a clustered LUN.

How to do it:
Clustering Reporting Services

Saying it can't be done:

Thanks for your reply. Probably I wasnt that clear on the issue. The only help I need is how would I migrate the reporting services to a different server and update the datasource. Now that I am having 2 different sets of subscription on each node . If i backup the encryption keys  that would point to node 1 and restore it over the migrated server and then backup the encryption keys on node 2 and restore them respectively wouldnt it overwrite the existing configuration on the migrated server?
