iPrint Appliance and NetWare

I'm wondering what my options might be for migrating to the iPrint Appliance with our NetWare infrastructure. We are running NetWare 6.5 SP8 and I am planning an OES 11.2 migration soon, but we want to move our printing system first.

Any information would be very helpful. Thanks!

Re: iPrint Appliance and NetWare

I'm working on the same thing here. 300+NDPS/iPrint printers on Netware that I need to evaluate and possibly migrate to the appliance. Once I get my appliance up and running well, I'll work on migrating stuff.

Question: Are you managing workstations somehow? ZCM/SCCM? If so, you could always create new iPrint printers, pointing to the physical printers and just install the new ones with your management framework.

The iPrint appliance includes a migration utility for migrating
printers from NW/OES to the appliance.

No need to do that. Assuming existing printers on workstations point
to iPrint on NW/OES via DNS, it's simply a matter of using the
migration tool on the appliance to migrate the printers to it and then
updating DNS to point to the appliance. Users shouldn't notice any
change.

Re: iPrint Appliance and NetWare

We went ahead and rebuilt our small environment because we had just received new printers (part of the reason we went ahead with the project in the first place). Happily using iPrint Enterprise Appliance 1.1 and integrated with PaperCut for our accounting needs.
