We are currently backing up overnight from one 6.5/SP4 server to another. I
believe we could successfully switch if we had a hardware problem, but I
would like to make the system login script handle this as seamlessly as
possible.

Since changing the IP on the server isn't a small task, my thought was to
set up an IF/ELSE/ENDIF in the login script, along the lines of:

IF MEMBER OF "SERVER_1"
MAP <to server_1>
MAP <etc.>
ELSE
MAP <to server_2>
MAP <etc.>
ENDIF

That way, by removing users from a group or even eliminating the group,
everyone would see the alternate set of drive mappings.

I'd love to hear thoughts about this scheme - is there a simpler/better way?

Thanks in advance.
