I have a windows 2000 member server as the print server and would like to replace it with a windows server 2003 as the new print server.   Ideally I would like to keep the same name and IP on the new box as the old one.  I have used to print migrator 3.1 to backup the old server and restored on the new box.  What is the easiest and least disruptive way I can decommission the w2k box and have the w2k3 as the new print server?  
Thanks in advance.

Hi
Because your server is a member server, you need to remove from domain that server, change the name and IP. Then change the name for new server to old sever, join to domain, change the IP. If the server is DC the things is more complicated, but for member server that should by all.

Dan, thanks for responding.  I just did that this morning and everthing looks good so far except for when I use the add printer wizard > Find a printer in the directory > Find now - it populates 2 of each printer.  Not sure why it is doing that when the old print server is turned off.  Thanks
