I've recently used the Print Migration Tool to move all my printers off my old DC/print server (W2K) to my new (future DC) Windows 2003 Server print server. I have all the clients pointing to the new print server and everything is printing fine. The old print server is still hanging out on the network because it is one of the DC's. Is there a way to remove the print server role from the Win2K server like you can in Server 2003? Or is it ok to just leave it out there and not mess with it since all the clients are pointing to the new server?
