Ok here is the deal.. I have a Windows 2003 print server hosting 50 HP and Xerox IP printers. We were recently aquired by another org and we have to change or entire IP addressing scheme. What is the quickest way to change the IPs on all this printers, while making the change transparent to NT, 2000 and XP clients?

Thanks

Load HP WebJetAdmin, and change the setting on each printer via the web interface.. You will need to do a complete network discovery to detect all printers on your network before acting.

btw.. this is only for HP printers.... don't think it exists for xerox.. Usually, Xerox printers have a web interface on each printer. If these printers are far from you, you can probably type their IP addresses in a browser and change the IP via the web interface..

Yan West is right on this opne, however you may get some functionality with the Xerox's

also you can configure multiple devices in the one go via Web jetadmin.

From the left hand side of web jetadmin, select tools, and then multiple device configuration..

then add all the printers you want to configure and the first ip address, last ip address, gateway etc.. this should configure these all.

onl yone problem though.

although this will change the ip addresses of the printers unless you are using host names to identify your ports and have either dns or wins configured properly, you will have to manually either change or create new tcp/ip ports via the pritner properties or server properties for each printer that you have changed.

any further questions please let me know..
