Application failover

By PCP ·
I'm looking for a solution to an application availability problem.
We are migrating from NetWare and ZENWorks to Windows2000 and SMS. Under ZEN, we had the application files stored on two servers with the icon configured to load the app from one server (primary) or from the secondary server if the primary was not available.

As we are not implementing clustered servers, is there a way to achieve this with SMS or Active Directory application distribution? If not, are there any third party tools which can help.

Last resort is to develop a front-end app which can check the availability then load the app accordingly.
