consolidating brokers into single driver store...

My network is spread across two physical locations. When I first
setup iPrint, I created a broker and print manager at both locations
running on Netware 6.5. The main location has been migrated to OES
11. I will be doing a transfer ID to upgrade the second office server
from Netware to OES 11. But I want to now have a single driver store.
The second office will only have a print manager, but will get drivers
from the store at the main office. I kept printer drivers in sync
between the two netware brokers, so the driver store at the main
office should be ready to handle both locations. When I migrate the
server and iprint at the second office, how do I tell it to use the
driver store at the main office?

Thanks,
Ken

I think we did this (my memory may be shot) when we did our Rolling cluster Upgrade for iPrint. If we did, check my docs to see how we migrated the items over.

I believe we simply used the miggui to migrate both NW Brokers to a single OES driver store, then when you migrate your managers, you can point them to the single driver store and as long as your DNS stuff is right, your users shouldn't notice.
