Move Broker / NDPS Manager to different server

Running Netware 6.5 SP5 servers.

If I want to load the broker.nlm and ndpsm.nlm on a different NW 6.5
server, should I delete the original broker & Print Manger objects and
recreate them on the new server's volume? Tried modify the object but don't
see the option to change the database volume. I guess deleting the broker
object means I also have to re-create all the printer objects but this
would not be a problem for me.

Another question, should a remote server has its own Broker / NDPSM?

Thanks

Joerg:

I did look at 10016871 but it said possible of DS corruption which scared
me. The first broker will be the a test setup i.e. move one printer to NDPS
and only have 6 people using the new printer. When everything works then I
will install the new file/print server and recreate the NDPS objects on the
server that will load the Broker.nlm and NDPSM.nlm.

Do you think the above make sense?

Thanks
Che

Re: Move Broker / NDPS Manager to different server

I´m quite not sure, what you want to do.
For the broker, you just can copy the driver directory
sys:\ndps\resdir to the new server and create a new broker assigned to
this volume. This makes you keep all drivers.
If you see problems moving the ndpsm, what way do you want to use?
Creating a new NDPS-Manager and recreating the PA´s? This is the safe
way.
I moved the PA´s with the Consolidation Utility. It worked great.

Best regards.
