Controlling Security Access within Cluster?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a two node cluster and share the sysuaf.dat and the queue manager
 between the two nodes.  Is it possible to keep users logged into one system
 from printing to specific printers yet still allow them to print to those
 printers from the other node in
the cluster?

The Answer is :

  There are a number of files beyond SYSUAF that must be shared in a
  cluster configuration, see SYLOGICALS.TEMPLATE.
  For you specific environment, you can configure a denial ACE on the
  print queue, based on the identifier (SYS$NODE_nodename) that is
  automatically assigned to each process that has logged in on a
  particular node.  Further, if your application environment requires
  it, you can also combine identifers within an ACE, indicating an
  action to be taken if all specified identifiers are present.  You
  can also assign identifiers to executable images, using the OpenVMS
  security mechanism known as subsystem identifiers.
  Examples of standard ACEs include:
