Migration between domains
How do I migrate printers?
I have to transfer 15 print queues from one server on domain A to another server on domain B.
What needs checking before I begin?
Migration of printer drivers or printers requires prior checking of the following points:
- Printing monitors must first be installed on the destination machine (LPR, HP JetDirect, etc. ports)
- Software must be run from a workstation on which all the printer drivers are known. Tip: by default, the print server to be migrated
- Driver migration:
- The source and destination computers must have IDENTICAL operating systems (NT -> NT, 2K -> 2K, 2003 -> 2003). If this is not the case, you will have to install the printer drivers manually.
- All of the DLLs and files contained in the source computer's %systemroot%\System32\Spool\Drivers directory must be copied to the same directory on the destination machine, either manually or using Migrating file and directory security settings.
