Active - Passive print cluster - What dependencies do I need?
Posted on 2010-11-30
I have two Windows 2003 R2 servers, I have this set up as an active - passive file and print cluster. Whenever it fails from clust1 to clust2 server, some printers do not work, jobs get hung up in the queue. When I fail back to clust1, it prints. So printing to some of the printers does not work from clust2 which is strange, you figure no printers would work. They were all set up the same way to use the cluster service.
I think it's because of the dependencies I have set up. The resource I have set up is called "Spooler" the dependencies are...
Cluster IP Address
Disk H - Data drive
Disk Q - Quorum
Root Share - H:\Userdata
I am pretty sure I only require Cluster IP and Cluster Name. I am going to test this tonight, any feedback would be appreciated, thanks!
