You could set the Max Concurrent User parameter in the Notes.ini to zero, or you could use the notes.ini parameter to set the Server Availability to zero. However, in the case of an actual failure of the main server, you would have to remove the parameters and restart the Domino service to allow people to connect to the failover server. That kind of defeats the purpose of having a clustered failover server. This scenario is difficult to avoid. You will always get people who fail over for some reason. As long as the servers can handle the load, it isn't that terrible to have them failing over. If you really want to limit who is hitting the failover server on a regular basis, then you would have to reset their icons.
