Hi,

I need to replace an older windows print server with a new one but don't want to mess with the clients in terms of their current printer mappings in the field.  When I set up the new printer and migrate over the queues and drivers (using MS Print Migrator) do I also need to rename the new server to the same as the old server (after taking down the old server?)  I have a cname set up as well but we bind here so I can't map a printer using that.

Thanks

The new server will need to have the same name as the old server.

Take a backup or your original print server with MS Print Migrator
Unjoin the old print server and remove it from the network
Join the new print server (using the old print server name)
Use MS Print Migrator and restore the printers from backup

The whole operation should take less then an hour
