To foster from the failover concept of Cups I have set up 2 servers with the same printers and settings to enable the implicit classes.
I added first aprinter defined with the name myprinter (a Ricoh MP5000)
BrowsePoll Server B
On Server B i did no printer definition
BrowsePoll Server A
That is working fine on Cups web interface of Server B
i see queuename Server A.myprinter(and vice versa).
Now I add the printer (without samba via ipp) to my windows client with the parameters http://server
A:631/classes/myprinter. I can print that way all ok. The job appears and will be printed on Server A
COLOR="DarkRed"]Now my Question[/COLOR]
When I disable myprinter on A. I cannot print. I expected with the implicit classes that it switches to Server B.
Is the idea wrong ? Or is Windows limited here ? Or is there another way of defintion I have to do.
My both servers are running on different platforms
Suse SLES 10 and Red Hat. CUPS version 1.4.4
Hopefully someone can help.
