Redundancy in Print Servers
Good afternoon all
Right, have a new server (delayed summer project) being delivered on Friday for setting up in our domain which will take over as PDC and I'll use our existing PDC in its demoted state as a redundancy plan. So, I can manage the whole DHCP, DNS thing, but I'm just wondering, is there a way to make it act as a failover for printers too?
Currently, all our printers are shared on one server and deployed using \\server.name\printer.name, whereas I'd prefer (if it's possible) to use \\domain.name\printer.name, like you can with DFS shares for files etc.
Is this possible in 2008R2 at all? Or does anyone know of a solution to do such a thing?
