Windows NT 4 Printing Issue
Posted on 2003-10-27
I have a printing issue in Windows NT4, I have a print server named testprint1 that has print queues on it and users connected to it. I also have another server named testprint3 that has the exact queue names on it. I would like to find a way to seamessly move the existing users on testprint1 over to testprint3 without making modifications at each individual workstation. I have tried the following and it didn't work:
Created a CNAME in DNS and pointed it to testprint3
Made a WINS entry for testprint1 with ip address of testprint3
deleted A record in DNS for testprint1 and tombstoned testprint1 in WINS
This didn't work for me, does anyone have any suggestion that would enable me to have users who printer is setup to print to \\testprint1\testprinter to have it reidrect to \\testprint3\testprinter without any workstation modifications???
