Moving all iPrint items from one server to another

I think this would be fairly easy, but I haven't found any docs yet.

I have a NetWare 6.5 sp6 server whose sole function is iPrint. I need
this server for another task, so I want to move all the iPrint things
to another NetWare 6.5 sp6 server (it is our main file server but
doesn't have much load on it). I setup iPrint with DNS so as far as I
know, I shouldn't have to deal with name changes on the printers.

I would appreciate it if someone would list the steps or point me to
docs that describe the process. Thanks!

Regards,
Ken Etter

Does the other server where you want to move to have iPrint printers or not?
If the destination server does not yet have any printers, then the move is
very simple. You just unload the NDPS Manager from the source server and
then load it on the destination server with the same manager object. You
will then be asked whether you want to move the manager to the new server
and you simply answer yes.
For the broker, you can simply copy the driver directory structure to the
new server and then either change your brker properties to point to the
new server, ot alternately create a new broker and then use the setens and
setrms options when loading the manager to point to the new broker. See
the following TID for details:

The destination does not have any iPrint things at all. I assume I
need to just do the iPrint install from the CD without configuring any
new brokers, mgrs, etc... Then do the steps you list below to move my
existing components? The server currently hosting iPrint will be
totally gone when this is complete.


Thanks,
Ken
