Migrate iprint OES1 linux to OES2 linux following TID 7002644 notworking...


I'm trying to move iPrint of our OES1 cluster to a standalone OES2SP1
server following TID 7002644 but I can not get it to work.

I get an error in /var/log/messages saying "The iPrint Manager was not
able to exec child process /opt/novell/iprint/bin/." and then ipsmd goes
inte "defunct", ipsmd.log just claims ipsmd was started without any issues.

It is NOT running on NSS volume but on reiser.

Googling the above error message gives me to hits neither of which seems

Any clues or anyone have any other way of migrating the printers to a
new server without needing to reinstall on workstations?
