Lost printer driver profiles after upgrade from 1.0.1 to 1.1

Hello all,

Upgraded and imported the config file from the old appliance. All looks and behaves well. Users can print and printers retained their profiles.
But, I don't see any driver profiles listed when trying to modify or copy from.
I looked into the padbtxt.xml and do see profiles at the end of the file.

Searching this forum I saw bytesnake's question from 2013, but things don't look the same on my system. I don't have files under /tmp and so on.
Help, anyone?

Just to make sure - I load the print manager with a blank db and import the same conf file from before. The same one that doesn't let me see driver profiles.

you mentioned that the padbtxt.xml has the profiles so yes you have to
use the xml file that shows the profiles. This process will import the
info from the xml file into the db file (iprint manager database) hence
you'll be able to see them again.
