changing netware 5 to netware 6 ndps

Hi,

We are changing our server from netware 5.0 with ndps to netware 6.0 with ndps
Both servers are on a seperate networks at the moment while testing. We are using the same ipx address but different ip addresses.
All the tree structure is the same and print que's located in the same locations.
The problem is.
If I login to the current server and setup a printer in Windows, then logout and login to the new server that is in testing.
Windows fails to connect to the printer. Both servers have the same netware server name too.
We would like to be able to change servers tomorrow without having to go to 100pc's to reinstall the printers.
Any sugestions?

Thanks
