Change IP address for NDPS printer

Hi - all of our printers need to be re-addressed.  The NDPS manager/broker server IPs will not be changed, just the printers themselves.  Is it any more complicated than modifying the NDPS object and changing the config line "NDPSGW PORT=LPR HOSTADDRESS=xx.xx.xx.xx" ?  Any gotchas?

Thanks!

Nope. None at all. That's the great thing about NDPS. From a client perspective they're printing to the server, which just redirects to the printers. You may need to restart the manager after making an IP change, but that's about it!

Weeelllll, that's not *all.*

You also have to change the print server's IP address.  Are they all on HP JetDirect or similar network-attached print server devices?

If so,

1)  Pause input and output and shutdown the printer in iManager iPrint "Manage Printer" task
2)  Change the address in JetAdmin, Web JetAdmin or with the JetDirect's embedded web server.  Restart the JetDirect/printer to make the change "take."
3)  Change the config line for the NDPS printer object in iManager
4)  Start the printer and un-pause input and output.

That should do it.  In theory.

Alextoft - thanks for verifying.

ShineOn - yep, we got that part - We're implementing VLAN's so prior to changing our switches, we'll hit the embedded web server, change the IP, assign the switch port to the VLAN, modify NDPS and we should be good to go.  I of course enjoyed your "in theory" comment ;-)  

Thanks guys!
