Moving iPrint backend...

Hi

We shall be moving a couple of sites onto clusters over the coming weeks.

The sites run iprint under NW65 SP3 (NDPSM -3.01.15 , BROKER - 3.00.10) and
will be moving to a cluster resource based on NW65 SP5 nodes.

The printers are currently set to use the ip address of the server in their
configuration. (e.g. ippPrinterURL=ipp://192.168.2.201/ipp/CXPR001-HPLJ4200)

Is there a way we can tell the clients to start using a dns name for the
ndpsm (e.g. iprint.domain.local) so that we can ease the transistion?
(I seem to remember a BrainShare session refering to an iprint.ini setting
that may do this...)

Any other thoughts and suggestions on moving the config? (if need be, we
can upgrade the existing server prior to the 'move')

Regards and thanks

David

Depending upon the client version ( I would use iPrint Client v4.20), when
you change the URL of the printer (either the ip to dns or visa-versa, OR
change the PA Name) the client gets notified of the change and automatically
will re-install the printer with the correct url. SO, before moving to the
cluster, I would suggest setting up a DNS name for the Print Service, then
loading the NDPS Manager with this name. See TID 10069798 for command line
switches for the NDPSM and TID 10069797 for the command line switches for
the Broker. Also look at this doc:
