Windows 2012 R2 High Availability Printing cluster server

I have created a 2-node Windows 2012 R2 server cluster from 2 VMware VMs and I want to make this server cluster a HA print server. I have installed 2-node print server failover cluster with 2008 R2 on VMware virtual machines before but With Windows 2012 R2, there is no cluster print service so I am not sure what to do next? Please advise,

Print clusters are gone in 2012. Microsoft's official guidance is to use VM HA (Hyper-v cluster or VMware cluster) to make the VM portable and highly available instead of making a print cluster.

Hi Cliff,

Thank you for your comment, I read the article and also read "Install and Configure High Availability Printing" article which I have to configure Virtual Machine Monitoring feature. So after finished configuring VM Monitoring feature, How do I create print queues on the cluster and adding or updating driver?
Cliff GaliherCommented:
Again, it isn't a print cluster anymore. It is just a highly available VM. As such, you manage the queues and drivers just as if it were a single physical print server.

Yep. That video is basically a visual version of the document I linked to and is consistent with what I've said here.

The youtube video walked me thru how to do it.

ThinPrint released a new version of it's printing software containing high avalability feature for print servers. Shared printers can be remapped from another print server automatically in case the primary server is down (spooler crash, network link down etc). Print servers can be grouped. These groups can be configured for failover or load balancing.
