Error 310 - 'moved permanently' when moving iPrint Manager

Hi Guys

Our existing iPrint server is overloaded. We have purchased a new
machine dedicated to printing. We have as a secondary IP

The existing server:
- NW 6.5 SP5
- Secondary IP with DNS pointing at it
- Pcounter

The new server:
- NW 6.5 SP5
- Pcounter

According to what we’ve read, we did the following steps:
- Unload the print manager from the old server
- Unbind the address from the old server
- Bind the to the new server
- Run the new manager with ‘load ndpsm .IPRINTMANAGER.IPRINT.RU

As per documentation it asks us if we want to move the iprint database
and asks us which volume we’d like to put it on.

Problems after the move:
- printer list loads
- Authentication works when you try and install a printer
- Any attempt to install a printer is met by HTTP error 301 –
moved permanently
- Machines with existing iPrinters can’t print

Rolling back the changes allows things to work again *phew*.

Any comments will be most appreciated!

What iPrint client version are you using?
Check the printer properties on your workstations to see if they updated
themselves to include the correct printer URL with the DNS name.
