We have a mixed network environment, with Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller/Exchange Server/Blackberry Server and Windows 2000 ServerSP4 Application/Member Servers. Network is one network segment. Downstream desktop workstations are Windows 2000 Professional SP4. Print server is Windows 2000 SP4. Yes, we use Active Directory.
Changing geographic location of some network printers. IP Addresses remain the SAME. Naming convention for printers is "Floor & Wing_Type of Printer_Model/Series of Printer". So if a printer is named, for example, "200E_Col1_8000" it translates as "2nd Floor, East_Color Printer Number 1_ HP Laserjet 8000". It is available to Everyone.
If we were to MOVE that printer to the 3rd Floor, we'd still want it available to everyone, but the new name has to reflect the new location, from the 2nd Floor to the 3rd Floor.
I have reviewed the following MS Knowledge Base articles and they have only served to confuse me:
HOW would we accomplish the moves in a way that would NOT drastically interrupt user access?
Thank you for your assistance!
