MPSreports and MSDT do not gather the Virtual Print Queue information from a Windows Server Failover Cluster

Applies to:

Windows Server 2003

Windows Server 2008

Windows Server 2008 R2


On a Windows Server Failover Cluster based system when you run the MPSReport or MSDT Setup/Performance or Cluster or PFE version, you might notice that it only collects local Print server related information (print queues, print drivers, printer ports).

To work-around this:

Click on Start, Run, CMD.exe


oeminbox.exe \\VirtualPrintServerName –v > c:\temp\PrintCluster.txt

Note:  Where \\VirtualPrintServerName is the network name of the virtual print resource.
