I am installing a new Soalris 10 server and need to get all 150 printers from an older Soalris 9 server configured on the new Soalris 10 server.  I have copied the /etc/lp/printers, /etc/lp/interfaces, /etc/printers.conf (changed the server name from the old one to the new one) from the old server (9) to new one (10) and cannot seem to get this to work.  I have opened up Print Manager in Solaris 10 and can see the printers but none of them work.  If I do an lpstat, they are all outputted to /dev/null.

Anyone have any experience with Solaris printers who could help me with this?
