8.4 Starting the iPrint Cluster Resource

  1. In iManager, click Cluster > Cluster Manager.

  2. Browse to and select the print Cluster object.

  3. Under Cluster State, select the cluster resource you created for print.

  4. Click Online to load the iPrint cluster resource.

    If the resource does not load, ensure that the shared disk is running and the load script contains correct entries.

  5. Select the node you want to load the resource on.

  6. Create a driver store. For more information, see Section 3.2.1, Creating a Driver Store.

  7. Create a print manager. For more information, see Section 3.2.4, Creating a Print Manager.

    You can have more than one Print Manager running in a cluster, but only one can run on a cluster resource node. For example, assume there is a four-node cluster with serverA, serverB, serverC, serverD, and two Print Managers. One Print Manager is running on serverA and other on serverB and they are assigned to fail over to serverC and serverD. If you assign the Print Managers to fail over to the same cluster resource node, the Print Managers might collide and not fail over.

On loading the iPrint cluster resource, you can add printer drivers to the Driver Store and create printers. For more information, see Section 3.2.3, Adding Printer Drivers and Section 3.2.5, Creating a Printer.
