I was wondering whether I should have multiple live print servers or a backup/replicated DR server and just 1 live server?
At present, the company I work for has 2, verging on 3 print servers and they're a real mess. We have in the region of 100 printers ranging from high use to rarely used including MFD's. I've brought it upon myself to reorganise the whole print services of the company and manage drivers. devices and the server. We have a virtual infrastructure so actual resources to the server are not a great issue when running on Server 2008 R2.
My only fear is that if I install a new driver on to a server and it creates an issue for it I'd like to be able to provide some redundancy. Answers on a post card!
Also, any advice on driver implementation and control would be much appreciated.
