NDPS server in cluster mode

Hi everyone....

I have an NDPS server ( netware 6.5 sp5 server ).
This server control all my printers.

It is possible to put this server in cluster mode for that if my server
crashed, another one takes his place to continue the printing service?

If it's not possible, does there another manner to do to be able to
preserve my service ( if the server crashed )?

Thanks in advance....

Yes. Just check the cluster documentation on how to cluster iPrint. That
will handle both iPrint and NDPS.

Re: NDPS server in cluster mode

Hi Marcel....

Thanks for your answer, i found the documentation.

I have another question. In the documentation, i saw that i have to create
a Broker and give to him the shared folder on my SAN. Same thing for Print
Manager.

I already have a Broker and Print Manager and many many printers intalled.
I just want to know if it's possible to migrate all of this stuff from the
server drive to San drive?

I don't want to have to reinstall all.

Thanks in advance....

Copy the whole NDPS directory structure from the local volume to a SAN
volume you created for NDPS. Then change the Broker and Manager properties
to point to the SAN volume.
