Netware migration consolidation

I am starting to look at my options and I need some advice / guidance. We
have been using iprint on Netware since 5.0. I have 27 schools each with its
own server / broker / manager. Last summer all links were upgraded to gig
fiber from 50mb wireless. So connectivity is excellent. over time all that
is left that Netware is serving is print / authentication / DNS and DHCP. we
are looking at ways to consolidate all of this back to the data center to
help minimize hardware in the schools. It seems that everyone is moving to
the appliance. Is this the only option now? Is iprint no longer supported on
OES?
Second question. Currently each school has their own iprint page with just
their printers. If I consolidate all the printers (about 700) to an
appliance or 2 how would I continue to serve only the printers for each
school and not have them now see all 700 on the ipp page?

iPrint is and will still be supported on OES but most new features are put into the appliance, like the mobile printing stuff so I would recommend going with the appliance..

You could use the iPrint Map Creation tool for example to create a customized webpage for your printers: http://www.novell.com/documentation/iprint-appliance1/iprint_appliance/data/b15xnq0f.html

Re: Netware migration consolidation

I can look at that. I was hoping to keep this as seamless as possible. my
end users have been doing it as a list for 15 years. and currently I have
976 printers spread out in 24 buildings. adding maps with multiple floors
and locating them on the maps would be a monumental task for us. Thanks for
the info.

Yep, but you don't need to create the maps, it can be a simple html page with some links.. There are som examples that you can view.
