Move ndpsm and broker to other server ?

Hello
I am going to move NDPSM and broker from server01 (running nw6sp6) to
server02 (running nw65sp5), would this be the way to go, am I missing
something ?

* Create new broker: Server02_broker
* Shut down broker on server01
* Copy \\server01\sys\ndps\resdir to \\server02\sys\ndps\resdir
* Start broker server02_broker on server02 (which should reindex the drivers
from the old broker)

* Shut down ndpsm on server01

* Change ndpsmanagerIP dns to point to server02 ip-address.

* Start ndpsm on server02 with command:
* LOAD NDPSM server01_ndpsmanager /dnsname=ndpsmanagerIP
/SETRMS=server02_broker.gymnasiet /SETENS=server02_broker.gymnasiet

* Remove start of ndpsm and broker from server01 and add it to server02
instead.

will this break the functionality of the printers installed on a local workstation?

If your pritners are installed as NDPS printers (and not as iPrint
printers), then the change will be completely transparent to the
workstations. If you are using iPrint, then an extra step needs to be
taken to make the change transparent:
Before doing the actual migration, you should load the NDPS Manager with
the /dnsname option on the source server and run that confiuguration long
enough to allow all workstations to update their iPrint URLs.

Would this work when going from 1 tree to another? I already have DNS name in place for iprint.

No. If you are going to a different tree, then the new server can't just
use the same NDS objects as the old one. When moving between trees, I
suggest using the server consolidation and migration toolkit:
