Printer Migration on Server

We had to set up a new server (looking at phasing out old one) and so had to migrate all the network printers. Not looking forward to a drawn out process of finding driver CD’s downloading files etc, we went for a quick net search for help and found a great tool.

Print Migrator 3.1

Summary from the Microsoft site

Print Migrator 3.1 is the latest release of this utility, which automates the backup and restore of print configuration data on print servers running Microsoft Windows NT 4, Microsoft Window 2000 and Microsoft Windows Server 2003. Print Migrator 3.1 continues full support for print servers running Microsoft Cluster Services; support for migration between different version of Windows (for example, Windows NT 4 to Windows Server 2003); and support for conversion of line printer remote (LPR) ports to the Standard TCP/IP Port Monitor on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. This paper is designed for systems integrators, administrators, and architects who are planning, deploying, or managing Windows Print Servers.
