NetWare or Linux?
If this is a NetWare server, you don't backup/restore the database, but
you smply unload the Manager at the source server and load the Manager at
the destination server using the same Manager object from NDS. It will
then ask you whether you want to move the database.
If you want the pritners to automatically move to the new server, you have
to make sure that you use a separate DNS name for iPrint and after move
the Manager, you change your DNS configuration to make the iPrint DNS name
point to the new server.

For the broker, you manually copy the ndps\resdir directory to the new
server so that you have your drivers and then you best create a new broker
object for your new server pointing to the volume holding your NDPS
directory. Then use the SETENS and SETRMS command line options on your
NDPS Manager to point it to the new broker:

Re: Backup and Restore iPrint Component

Manager can be load on another server and also move the database to the new
server, is it only for nds object or there is some file must be move to new
server. I mean what happen if the source server already crash and i want to
restore the manager to new server.

There are files that are copied. However if the source server is not
available, you can also restore the database from NDS. In fact, every
night, the NDPS Manager makes a backup copy of the database to NDS.
