Print Management - Migrate printer on a cluster resource
Hello,

When I use the Print Management snap-in and try to run the "Migrate
printer..." tool, I choose to export a list of printers, then enter the name
of the virtual server (it's a resource on a 2000 cluster) where all the
printers and spools are installed. I get the message "Windows could not
connect to the registry on \\<virtualservername>. Please enable the remote
registry service on the server." If I enter the physical node server name
the virt runs on, it connects but the printers aren't installed there. The
remote registry service is running on the physical node. Is this a known
issue?

Re: Print Management - Migrate printer on a cluster resource
Yes. Vista RTM cannot backup printer items on a cluster. Vista SP1
incorporates the cluster api changes that allow this to work.

I've never confirmed on a Server 2000 cluster, only Server 2003.
