IPrint Migration to new server

Am migrating from one Netware 6.5 SP6 server to another. Have moved
everything except network printing. All printers are configured to support
IPP. The volumes that all the printer stuff (DB & queues) is in an ISCSI
SAN. I use the /dnsname flag on the manager. It should be easy to move the
volume from oldserver to newserver and modify the broker & manager objects
to point to the volume off the new server. This will make the migrate
pretty transparent t othe IPP users. The problem I have is that I still
have some clients configured to print via NDPS directly. I don't have a
problem moving them to IPP (I want to), the problem is that I have no easy
way of identifying who these users are. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: IPrint Migration to new server

Both NDPS and iPrint are "plugged into" the Novell Auditing/usage reporting
feature. It has been a while since I looked at this, but it still should
be working. Check your documentation on Product usage/auditing...

Re: IPrint Migration to new server

I've gone into the audit reports under NDS Manager Health in NRM. It gives
me a real good report on whose printing to what printers, but I don't see
anything that tells me whether the clients are using IPP or straight NDPS.
