moving iPrint to another server revisited

Good Morning,
I posted this before and got a reply, but I need to clarify this in my
head before I do the work. I do not want to cause problems.....

I know I need to install iPrint on the new server with iManager. Is the
best way to create a new Broker on the other server and move the NDPS
manager and agents or??? I really do not know what is the best way to
this.I am hoping that I do not have to revisit all of the PCs.

Netware 6.5 SP3a, eDirectory 8.7.3.5

I have the broker installed on server F2 and want it installed on F1.
I have seen this TID:
http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?10085609.htm
Will this work for me?

I also found these two options: Moving NDPS Manager TIDs:
http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?10016871.htm
http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?10074763.htm

I have this in the early stages. I currently have one broker and
manager with about 10 printers created. We currently have about 50 PCs
configured. I need to get this done soon so that I can do the 40+
printers and about 200 users...

Thank you
Will

Re: moving iPrint to another server revisited

Depends on how the printers are installed. NDPS printers verify the
printer with the DS object. Moving the manager to another server should not
change the location of the Printer object in the tree, so you should be
okay. With iPrint printing, see TID 10069798, specifically the DNSNAME
switch. THis allows the iPrint printers to be referenced by a dns name
instead of the address. This way all you have to do is make sure the dns
name points to the correct server, the clients should continue to work
okay...

Re: moving iPrint to another server revisited

I guess, I am just too new to this 😞
In the Agent List we have the printers listed by name, but they were
configured with the IP address. The IP address or names of the printers
will not change.

I need to move the broker to another server. I can recreate the broker,
but I want it to have a new name (no mention of what server it is on).
I understand that all the broker does is hold the print drivers.

I also want to move the NDPS manager and the printers to the broker on
the new server. With any luck, the printers will continue to work.

What is the best way to move the broker to F1 and rename it? Would I be
better off creating a new one?
What is the best way to move the NDPS manager to F1?
What is the best way to move the printers to the manager?
What else do I need to be aware of?

Thank You for your time and help!! Sorry for all of the questions, but
I do not have a large window of time to make this work and I am up
against a dealine to get things running. I do have iPrint installed on
the new server, just waiting for window for rebooting.
