Using PrintMig to backup 2 node cluster to a DR 2 node cluster

Hello, we are trying to backup our production two node windows 2003 SP2 print cluster to a test print cluster to use as a DR option. After we printmig the production cluster and apply the .cab via PrintMig.exe to test/DR cluster, by cluster name, we only see printers on one node. If we initiate a failover the printers nor the attributes are propagated to the other node. I have read where people are printmig'ing to a single node then using printmig again to migrate printers to inactive node. We have not tried this yet, just getting a feel for how people are doing this.

thanks again for you help.

you will need to run printmigrator on each node.  When you run it against the cluster node name, it only hits the active node.  Now you could make the printers clustered resources, but it sounds like you just installed it to the current node.  I would just install it on the second one.
