What would be the easiest method to consolidate 2 printer servers to 1. We have a new HP proliant DL 380 G3 that we would like to use as our new print server. We have 2 old compaq 3000 server currently acting as our print servers. What would be the easiest way to move all the queues to the new printer? Is there a tool that can be used to migrate the printers over?
It would be insane to have to create 250 printers all over again. All the printers have address leases tied to their mac adresses.
Thank you in advance!

What operating system? NetWare? Linux with CUPS? We're Experts, not mindreaders. We need to know a LOT more about your environment.

this document should explain how to migrate the printers on a windows 2000 or 2003 server:

Windows 2000 to 2003, I think i found a tool called printmig.exe, which seems to have worked.
