    Thank you for the answer.
    My problem is, that the new cluster is already on new hardware and has
    installed Windows 2003
    How do i get the two servers "together"?
    Thx in advance

    Hi Rod,

    on the old Cluster we have more or less standard: DHCP, DNS, Printer Queues,
    WINS and
    File Server.
    DNS, WINS and DHCP isn´t so much the Problem. What the Problem seems to be
    the Printer Queues. I found the "Printer Migrating 3.1" from MS, which works
    fine, except that after the tool ran, the queues are not visible in the Net.
    I found the Cluster tools on ResKit 2000 to migrate resources and printers,
    but i don´t know if it really works, since it is designed for NT4 and 2000 (?)
    Do you know any smooth way and /or tool for the printer queues?

    Thank you in advance
    Kai

  7. Hi Kai,

    Have you tried using Clustool as indicated in the article below?

    278455 How to set up a clustered print server
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=278455

    You can also use the Clustool utility from the Resource Kit to migrate
    previously existing printer queues on a server to a clustered server. After
    that, use the Print Migrate utility to migrate the printer drivers. For best
    results, avoid having multiple servers configured to communicate directly
    with the same printer.
