Move iPrint Printer to Another Manager

I need to move printers from an iPrint Manager running on a server that is corrupted. I cannot use miggui or iManager to move the printers. Is there a way to manually move the printers from a server where the Print Manager is not running?

I had access to the padbtxt.xml backup files located in /var/opt/novell/iprint/<print_mgr_name>.psm directory. I manually edited the file to reflect the new print manager info and to remove any printers or profiles that I did not want to move. This file was saved as import.xml and then copied to the new server. On the new server (with iPrint already installed and a local print manger), I stopped novell-ipsmd and then ran ipsm -x import.xml to import the info into the print manager database file on the new server and then restarted novell-ipmsd.
