New iPrint printer doesn't see any of the existing drivers.

Okay I've been using iPrint for about a month.  Netware 6.5 sp5, latest and greatest iPrint software.

We have one single broker that  was feeding one single manager.  I've just added a new manager and two printers to this manager.  I've created the printer objects in the same OU as all of my other printers.  The problem I'm having is that I'm not seeing any drivers listed for the new printers (Existing or new that I've uploaded).  

Is there something that has to tie this new manager back to the broker in order to see the driver files?

    The manager should find the broker on the network.  Is the broker's server visible to the manager's server?

    You could use the broker-specific startup switches, as per the documentation, to avoid discovery issues:

    Ah Ha!  That was the piece I was missing.  I knew that there had to be a way to tell the Print Manager what Broker to use.

    For those of you that are curious, here is the command:
