Cluster Driver Directory Does Not Change the Location for Printers on the Shared Disk

If you use the Print Migrator you may run into an issue, say if the location moved from F:\PrinterDrivers to P:\PrinterDrivers.


Legend


F:\PrinterDrivers” is current location


T:\PrinterDrivers” is desired location on shared disk


1. Check the following registry entry to confirm the path:


 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Cluster\Resources\72678bf4-64fc-4072-9f38-29b8861f16e2\Parameters]


 “ClusterDriverDirectory”=”F:\PrinterDrivers”


 The above entry should be pointed to “T:\PrinterDrivers”  ( shared disk) Note GUID maybe different, look for the ClusterDriverDirectory parameter.


2. If this is not pointing to “F:\PrinterDrivers”, stop the Cluster Service on BOTH nodes, and  run this command  from the  command prompt :


cluster . res spooler /priv ClusterDriverDirectory=”T:\PrinterDrivers”  <ENTER>


3. Restart the cluster service on both nodes.


4. Confirm that the path has remained fixed at T:\PrinterDrivers via the spooler resource and the registry entry.
