iprint upgrade to sp7

We have a nw65 sp6 server running iPrint with the 6f patch installed.

We want to upgrade to sp7 on that server. I wanted some advice as to the
best way to achieve this.

Should iPrint patch 6g to put on first, then patch netware to nw65sp7?

Is the move to sp7 'one way' for iPrint? I suspect it will be - on the
grounds that support for Windows Vista is added. Is there any way to back
this up before the install? I know the NDPS database works in tandem with
NDS, so I need to have a DR plan. I guessing the best way will be using
the PADBTXT.CSV file to re-create the printer agents.

Having over 1000 PAs and also even more workstations I do not fancy having
to do this... nor fielding the questions of what the users might see in
the event of a disaster...

Thanks in advance.

Re: iprint upgrade to sp7

1) There is no need to patch iPrint before installing SP7

2) I don't know at what point iPrint upgardes the Manager's database, but
given the manager makes daily backup copies botht eh manager's home
directory as well as to NDS, there is no need to reinstall your pritners.
It would just be enough to restore the database after uninstalling the SP.
In case you want to go back after more than a few days, make sure you have
a backup copy of the Manager's directory (typically the NDPS\xxx.PSM
directory where xxx is the internal object ID of the Manager)
